I have been a patient of Dr C for several years. He takes the time to explain straight what is important and what is not. He listens to how you are feeling and builds an approach to your healthcare with your input in mind. I fully trust him with my all my heart!

Although he is booked out for 6 months, it is clear why he is in such demand. After seeing him, and as a precaution due to a recurring spasm among other elusive symptoms that went undetected, he ordered a Nuclear stress test. A blockage was discovered and almost immediately, I was scheduled for a heart cath. I am impressed that he and his office are on top of my health. Unlike other cardiologists who have exhibited a lack of bedside manners, Paul is a partner. This is the best cardiologist in the area.

Dr Cunningham has saved my life under emergent circumstances more than once. If you need an interventional cardiologist in The Woodlands, Texas area, I highly recommend Dr Cunningham. Even under non-emergency circumstances, his patients' well being seems to truly matter to him.
