Dr. Buchbinder trained the Cardiologist that took care if me after my heart attack in El Paso Texas. My Doctor there referred me to Dr. Buchbinder when I moved to the San Diego area. Unfortunately for me I needed a Cardiologist again. Dr. Buchbinder is highly recommended by me, and now that I know where he is and that my insurance will pay him, I will be using him again. I trust this man with my life and so does my wife.
