I have been a cardiac patient of Dr. Rougas for over 5 years. During that time, we have developed a wonderful doctor & patient relationship. He is always interested in what I have to say and takes the time to address any issues or concerns I may be having with my health. Dr. Rougas encouraged me to climb at 14eener at age 62. What an awesome experience and personal challenge following my double by-pass surgery.

My exam was a bi-yearly heart exam and prep for surgery. I have been seeing Dr. Rougas for about 5 years. He is direct, candid and reasonable. He has built trust between myself and him and that is part of what makes him a great doctor. He is also not the "A" type personality that some cardiologists posses. He listens well and doesn't lecture; He spells the facts out and provides his best advise - which makes you want to follow his directions. Glad to have him as one of my physicians.
