This doctor has no time for his patients. Always hurried. Looking for another cardiologist.

Dr. rushes appointments, doesn't listen to your heart and seems disinterested in the patient. I seriously can't figure out why patients would accept this level of care. This is the main reason I'm leaving this practice.
