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
