Patient Comments (1)
in Ponchatoula, LA |
When I was told I needed to consult a cardiologist it scared me greatly. As I am one not generally fond of doctors, I procrastinated as long as I could. After meeting and consulting with Dr. Abraham I was COMPLETELY at ease. His bedside manner is second-to-none. Everything was explained to me in detail. The life-saving procedure performed on me went smoothly and I FULLY trust Dr. Abraham's judgement and advice will keep me around for several more years ! :)
