Dr. Rougas should get a 5 - Star rating. No exaggeration, he is seriously the best doctor I have EVER encountered. He is spot-on and totally current with Cardiology (and nutrition, exercise and vitamin) research/data and he is brilliantly trained, innovative and thinks outside the proverbial box without disregard to convention. He listens extremely well and speaks slowly and with clarity, and he encourages preventive diagnostics when appropriate. He is a forward-thinking clinician, and he inspires me to be the very best I can be. These qualities are vitally important to me.

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.
