What People Say About Dr. Samuel Rougas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Sam Rougas, MD, has been my and my wife's Cardiologist for 10+ years. At each visit, his receptionist and physician assistants performed with both superb effectiveness and efficiency to facilitate our visit with Dr. Rougas who is one of the most on-time physicians we have ever encountered. His manner is consistently most cordial and comforting. His thoroughness is remarkable down to the last detail. As a retired physician myself, I cannot over-emphasize how impressed I am after each visit, but my wife frequently remarks, "what a fine physician Dr. Rougas is".

Dr. Rougas was able to diagnose my Tachycardia when I awoke after one of my hip replacement surgeries, I had no idea I had it. My mother had a panic attack while they were trying to treat me & keep me from having a heat attack. He was great with her & reassured her he would take care of me & he has continued to take fantastic care of me, manage my medications & keep it under control. I am extremely thankful to him for going above & beyond to calm my mom down & care for me. His staff is great!

I have had nothing but good experiences with this office, scheduling and results are both very easy to come by. Dr. Rougas, specifically, is straight forward in his approach to care and really does take the time to explain what is going on. He will actually answer your questions, as opposed to the hand waving that some doctors fall back to. In fact, both him and Dr. Aznaurov have been great to work with, I would definitely recommend this practice to whoever asks.

In-office visits were informative, but Dr. Rougas was not ultimately able to make any conclusions regarding my condition. This is a major disappointment, as the medical expenses relating to his recommendations represented well over a month's salary after insurance coverage was deducted. It left me feeling that I had spent my money unwisely, and regret my choice in physician. I will be selecting another practice and another cardiologist in the future.
