Needed a pacemaker, scheduling was good but the surgery was botched. My lung was deflated from the surgery & I spent 8 days in the hospital. I was not allowed to get up except for about 5 minutes the whole 8 days, so i got very weak & I spent 46 days in rehab. The 1 day stay that I was told it would be as it turned out to be a nightmare of 56 days.

Dr. Fahmy is a great Dr. and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He save my fathers life and helped keep him alive for years following a massive heart-attack.

I have seen many cardiologist for my heart problems in the last 15 years but I have never had one who was so out of touch with new ways to manage heart disease. He told me I would have to live with chest pain the rest of my life! He was no help to me at all and added new stress to my life. My new doctors couldn't believe how he mismanaged my case.
