What People Say About Dr. Joseph Kiernan, MD
Reply
There's a reason why Dr. Kiernan is in top 50 cardiologists in country. He is simply AWESOME! He properly diagnosed, treated my hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. First meds and batteries of tests, until my genetically inherited condition couldn't be controlled with meds, diet. He scheduled every test, treatment, procedure at just the right time -- when needed. Has top-notch professional connections; knows top surgical and other cardiology experts, will connect you with them as needed.
