What People Say About Dr. Philip Paspa, MD

He came in on his day off to do my husband's emergency pacemaker. We were so thankful and happy it was him. He did a heart surgery on my stepfather years ago that was very complex and doctors from Duke, Charlotte, and Asheville were all afraid to do. He didn't have a lobg life expectancy at all without something being done. It went great and that has been more than 15 years ago and he is still doing well at age 82. Dr. Paspa was very kind and we arw very pleased with him.

I was in the ER with heart problems & had two procedures that needed to get done that was ordered by another doctor out of Paspa's office. Paspa was the doctor doing procedures that day, he decided not to do the procedures & have me come back on another day. I was already in the ER & the procedures could be done at that time. I had to ask for another Cardiology doctor from another office which put one stent into my heart and later on put stents into my legs. This doctor caused me a lot pain.

Regular Dr not available so saw this dr. He was pleasant, concerned, took the time to familiarize himself with my case and asked appropriate questions. Confidence inspiring and even gave me samples to try a new medication instead of having to pay for the expensive rx.
