What People Say About Dr. Richard Ammar Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Positive experience with this doctor. He seems to be very personable and down to earth, but scholarly and professional in his approach in "attacking" the problem at the time. I only met him in the hospital and was impressed I would not hesitate to call on him for treatment when necessary. He has the typical professionalism and human interaction I have come to expect from his associated doctor's group, "HEARTPLACE". They have, apparently, spend great efforts in securing the best and the brightest, as evident in Dr. Ammar and Dr. John Bret. Nothing but good things to say here, although, since I've never met Dr. A's medical staff, I can't say one way or the other, other than to say my telephone experience with his staff was good. Thanks!

Desperate for help and not understanding what was happening with my husband we ended up in Dr Ammar’s care. He took my husband on as a patient and for the first time in 34 years my husbands extremely high blood pressure has been lowered to normal. The road has been long with a stroke and pacemaker surgery, but Dr Ammar went through it with use and held our hand throughout the journey. Dr Amman saved my husbands life, and gave me my life back. He is nothing short of a miracle.

Dr. Ammar and his team are exceptionally professional, caring and efficient. I’m very pleased and confident in the care I’ve received for my HBP, arrhythmia and syncope. I’ve seen other cardiologists in the area and elsewhere in the country, and feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Ammar and Texas CardioVascular Specialists.

Dr. Ammar is very knowledgeable and caring. He always takes the time to listen about my concerns and is never in a hurry. He has been mine and my husband's Doctor for several years and will remain our Doctor. We are always treated as family by Dr. Ammar and his entire staff. If you need an excellent heart specialist, he's the one you need to see. Thanks Dr. Ammar.
