While I was uncomfortable at first in using a zoom meeting, Dr. Abdelkarim as usual went out of his way to make me comfortable and to ask questions, encouraging me mention even minor problems. He is the greatest!

I owe my life to Dr Murrad and Dr Dhoot (and all the nurses who assisted them ). I was to have a simple procedure done and went into cardiac arrest As I was told by one of the nurses that was there , I did not have a pulse or heart beat . She thought that I would not make it.... But by the GRACE OF GOD and Dr Murrad and Dr Dhoot . I am here to tell you that ( South Bay Heart and Vascular Center) and its STAFF are the best and I owe my life to them.

Dr Abdelkarim did my Angiogram. It was my second time. The difference was night and day. The first time my dr barely spoke to me either before or after. I came out bruised and my arm used for the procedure was hurting for almost 3 weeks. This time with Dr Abdelkarim i had no bruising and very very little pain. His bedside manner is terrific and so is his follow up. I think he is an excellent Dr and you would be lucky to have him. A rarity in this day and age.
