Every yearly visit became more and more rushed. Dr. Phang became more and more dismissive of anything I asked. Very arrogant. I finally decided enough was enough, and went elsewhere where I was treated with compassion and understanding, and could ask all the questions I wanted. I preceded with ablation, and am doing great!! Do yourself a favor, make the trip to NYC,and get a second opinion. Much better technology there, as well as more experienced and competent doctors.

Met Dr. Phang in Jan. 2017. I had a pulmonary embolism. Checkups went well. On 8 Feb.2020 I did not feel well. Went to the ER. The doctor was contacted and it an overnight stay for observation was recommended. Full workup and monitoring. When I saw the doctor he advised my heart rate had dropped to a low point in the mid 30's. Pros and Cons of a pacemaker were discussed and thanks to Dr. Phang's excellent medical knowledge and care, along with the staff at St. Peter's Hospital, I'm still enjoying life and family. 5 stars are not enough to express my gratitude.
