The man treated my father until I intervened and made a change. Dr. Gideon probably knows medicine but he is about appointments, procedures, drugs - the money end of the business. He put y father through a five-figure procedure in hospital which had previously been done and the doc doing it even said, "I don't know why we did that" (after the fact, of course). He's all about "Let's do a test - come back in a week and we will read you the results". All about booking appointments.

Very patient and through. Answers all your concerns. I love that he is soft spoken which helps any anxiety I may have!

Absolutely loved this Heart Specialist. He is very through. He ordered the nuclear stress test, and made a follow up appointment days later. He explained everything so we could understand it. He is very soft spoken, and we found him thoughtful and kind. We were very happy to have had him for a consultation. We were highly recommend him.

In short, he was rude. I was asked to provide some very specific information to my employer by a cardiologist. DR Gideon flat refused to even ad the document with the requested information and I'd that it wasn't his job to do that. Plus I waited about an hour after my scheduled appointment to even see him. As far as the rest if the staff I interacted with they were polite and professional, office was clean and orderly.

Dr. Gideon is one of the best doctors I have ever had. His patient 'bedside manner is exceptional. He takes time to explain everything. Helps you to make decisions on treatment. Is a most caring human being who happens to be a great doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiologist.
