in Aubrey, TX |
as a patient, a recommendation is to weak of a word for me to express to anyone hig highly I regard - and trust with my life - Dr. Ammar. Dr. Ammar acted with passion, compassion and expertise in rapidly diagnosing and addressing my personal health - in less than a week. As a former Paramedic, my self-diagnosis was not good. Dr. Ammar's friendly, open approach the very first time I met him put me a ease. At that moment, I knew i was in excellent hands. Outstanding!

A year ago May 2016 I made the decision to pick up the phone and call "911". It was the best decision on my life. At that time I was introduced to a young doctor, Dr Richard Ammar, who not only saved my life but put me on a program to change bad habits and learn to live a healthy lifestyle. Over time he has not only become my cardiac doctor but a friend. I own what I am today to his expert knowledge and care. Thank You Dr Ammar. I am so luck to be part of the Texas Cardiologists family.

in Denton, TX |
I first met Dr. Ammar after I was hospitalised with Congestive Heart Failure in August of 2016. He attempted to place a stint in one of the arteries near my heart. Since then, Dr. Ammar has been my cardiologist. I am very pleased with the care that I receive from Dr. Ammar and his staff is excellent.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Ammar and Nurse Kathy are the most professional and caring professionals I have met in my dealing with medical professionals. They genuinely care about your health, take the time to ask necessary questions and get to know you personally. They are not only my doctor but I consider them part of my family. There approach to patient care shows in the rest of the staff too.
in CORINTH, TX |
I can say nothing but positive things about Dr. Ammar and his staff. They are very friendly, understanding and make the visit extremely pleasant. It's almost more of a social visit than a Doctors appointment. As for Dr. Ammar, his communication skills and bed side manner are incredible. He listens, he answers, and it's all done with concern. Very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Dr. Ammar and group. You will not be disappointed. I should know, he's been mine for five years.
in Frisco, TX |
I am so thankful that Dr. Ammar and Ashley (do not know her surname) were in the ER when my dad had a massive heart attack Sat., 3/4/17. Not only are their bedside manner the best I've ever seen, they are the elite. Unfortunately, my dad did not make it while in ICU but that was not for a lack of diligence and expertise. The ICU nurses, Kevin, Karen and Amy, as well as Inu (not sure about spelling) did their best to further Dr. Ammar's handiwork. All are superstars!
in Denton, Texas |

in Ft Worth, TX |

I just love Dr. Ammar and his team. Very professional and caring and they have become like family.
in Lynden, WA |
We were visiting family in Fort Worth when I had a heart attack. I was sent to Denton Regional for a triple bipass surgery. I met Dr Ammar pre, post and follow up after surgery. I found Dr Ammar to be compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and the list goes on. Outstanding patient care and have recommended him to my brother in law. Thank you Dr Ammar and staff for providing such excellent patient care. God bless you.
in Muenster, TX |
Dr Ammar is a God Send. I have 34 stents from 20 cath lab trips for 12 heart attacks. Having said that, I'm kind of a "Conosueur" Of cardiac care! Dr Ammar has done procedures that no one in DFW can do, as well as being able to go in through the wrist, instead of the groin. Quicker recovery and far less pain ( actually no pain). He's funny, thorough , knowledgable , and caring. He'll spend as much time with you as is needed for you / family to be comfortable and informed about your proceedure
in Argyle, TX |
Wow!! If you want to put your heart in the hands of a doctor, this is THE GUY you want!!!! Dr. Ammar knows his business and can and will make you comfortable about having him as a partner in dealing with your cardiac health. Frank Wolter
