Dr Banas is a doctor like no other. He is not only brilliant,, but he takes TIME with each of his patients. Time to listen, and time to explain. He saved my husbands life after a virus attacked his heart, and he has been my doctor for the AFib I was experiencing, which is now gone. Dr Banas does not pretend to know it all, but he will thoroughly explain what he does know, and take the time to find the answers for anything he doesn’t. I strongly recommend that you see him for any heart issues

I had to find a new cardiologist after 20 years because of insurance, and was a little nervous. He respected my beliefs, and I know we will work together to keep my heart pumping smoothly until it won't!

Came at 11:20am for a 11:30am ECG/EKG at Maple . As I wait, 3 other patients come in and get serviced before me. One came for the exact same proceedure, another had a 12:00pm appointment (and received service BEFORE 12pm). After the 3rd patient came in and got service less than 3 minutes before signing in, I left. Then they has the nerve to call me at 1:30pm to reschedule as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing. If you value your time and have a modicum of self-respect, DO NOT come here

Dr. Banas' best quality, is that he explains everything thoroughly and so you can easily understand him. He listens to what you say, and answers to the point. A nothing thing about Dr. Banas, is that is very knowledgeable about medication. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. So blessed to have him as my cardiologist.
