When I first saw him in 2014 I could barely breathe. Was having chemotherapy induced heart failure. He made it possible for me to work full time. I fell lucky to have such a wonderful Dr. The entire staff is great

Took my father in for a referral from his primary physician due to lots of retaining fluid....nothing was done except by the nurse he then indirectly called my father fat and said the swelling was due to a poor diet when u can press on his stomach and legs and see the indention left.. Will be getting a second opinion
