I've been a patient of Dr.Ching for many years. He is a trust worthy doctor and expert in his field. If you have to place our life in someone's hands, he's your cardiologist hands down!

He performed my stent placement when I had a heart attack, from which I have essentially fully recovered. Smart, competent, great to work with.

Dr. Russell Ching has been cardiologist for several years. He is the best! I have been dissatisfied with four previous cardiologists, until I found Dr. Ching. He is easy to talk to, he listens and responds appropriately. He is very smart and experienced. His advice is always right on the money. He works very well with my other doctors. I have the highest regard for Dr. Ching.
