If I could give Dr Metzger 10 stars, I would. I was rushed into Bethesda East & had the good fortune of Dr Metzger and his team. He literally saved my life by removing multiple clots in my lungs, DVT and iliac vein. Had I been taken elsewhere, traditional therapies would not have saved me - confirmed by many doctors. With my life literally in his hands, I was immediately comfortable because of his confidence that the proposed procedure would succeed and he was right. The culture in his entire practice is a reflection of his professionalism and his brilliance as a physician. I’m forever grateful to Dr Metzger and back to living a very full normal routine.

Dr. Metzger is a no-nonsense practitioner who cuts right to the chase. My previous cartiologist wanted to do a procedure that I felt wasn't called for, so I went saw Dr. Metzger for a second opinion that confirmed my initial concerns about the advice I was being given. I want doctors who are pro-active when it comes to managing patients, and I wanted a practice that made better use of current communications tools. Both of those goals were met in the first visit.

I changed doctors after having A-Fib. Had an ablation done at Bethesda. Asked the head nurse on the cardiac floor who he would recommend for a cardiologist. He said the best, Michael Metzger. That was about 5 years ago. Have been seeing Dr. Metzger every since. Fantastic doctor. Takes time to explain everything. Tells it like it is......Saved my life.

I saw this doc one time and had several tests performed following an MI. He gave me an appointment to have the results explained. My appointment was at 4:15 on a Friday. I pulled into a parking space at the office and received a call on my cell from his medical assistant, Victoria, who informed me the doc had an emergency and just left the office. Offered me an appointment for a later date. I told her I didn't have my calendar and would call her back when I got home. Returned call and office was closed. Left message, but never received a call back from Victoria. I called the scheduler the following Monday and was given an appoint for 2:30 pm the following Thursday. At 1:30 pm I received a call from same Victoria, medical assistant, informing me with an attitude of god, the doc had an emergency at the hospital and didn't know when he would be back in the office. No apology. But I could come in at 5 pm. I informed the medical assistant that I had plans at 5 pm and again, with an attitude

Printed out the pre-appointment paperwork at home, filled it out & brought it to the office to get my prior doctor's records sent. Two weeks later,I arrived for my appointment. They had no record of me, denied that I had brought anything in, & never contacted my previous doctor to obtain my records.The front office worker looked dazed & confused.They rummaged around & FOUND my paperwork sitting where it was thrown 2 weeks ago.The front office is slovenly run,office is ugly. Manager ignored me.

Dr Metzger you're a great doctor. Your new group is horrible & will do more damage to your reputation then you can imagine. A month ago after having intermittent chest pains I called for an appointment, I was told the earliest was 4 weeks away. Now I'm having a reaction to new meds my MS doctor told me to see my cardiologist to rule out any heart issues. I explained this to the women who schedules appointments. She told me someone will call you back, all I wanted was an appointment.
