If I could give a zero star I would! This MD could not care less about any patients but himself. Can you believe this MD will discharge somebody from the hospital with sever Sortness of breath without looking at the echo results! This MD is extremely ignorant. Very unpleasant experience!

Shocked at high ratings; he could care less and does not listen at all. Totally consumed with himself and his sports; could care less about patients and saving lives.
