Took my husband in to be evaluated for bradycardia and some other issues. Both the staff and Dr. Pfahler were very pleasant. Dr. Pfahler performed some tests and took the time to explain the results and made recommendations for his care. Made some recommendations for medication changes as well (prescribed by another doctor), that were probably causing his issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Pfahler!

I have been a patient for several years and it appears he restrict his visits to about 15 minutes during which he makes notes on his computer. In my last 2 visits I waited 2 1/2 hrs, and l hour respectively before I saw him. He has adjusted my meds and I have undergone several procedures but I had to see another cardiologist to learn about my options. It would seem Dr. Pfahler has more patients than he can handle and now is spending Fridays certifying those who want to use cannabis for medical reasons. Really.

I have recently been a patient of Dr. Pfahler . My experience at his office was more pleasant than I expected. Not only a caring staff . Dr. P himself made me so comfortable and I felt free to ask questions. After running a few test he assured me my heart is fine.. So glad to have him here in Englewood. My only negative remark is the waiting time.

I'm proud to say that Dr. Pfahler has been caring for me for 10+ years. He has been loyal and attentive to a heart condition preparing me for my Aortic Valve replacement in July of 2016. He is compassionate, at the top of his game in knowledge, uniquely interesting and the 'best' listener!! Fortunate for me that I found him when I did. Kudos to his entire staff from first impressions, Front Desk, to nurses, technicians and doctors. Happy Hearts all around!!

My mother has been very happy with Dr. Pfahler, but his staff is unorganized and unsympathetic. Maria in particular is who my mother dealt with, yet she told my mother everyone in the office is aware of my mother (like she's a fool) and that she is not the only one with problems. When your patients are scared and without information, perhaps that is not the time to completely lose your professionalism. Dr. Pfahler should reconsider having staff around who make elderly patients cry.
