He is exemplary of what a physician should be and sets a very high standard for others. As a physician myself, I can readily say that he is a "physician's physician! He does not leave any stone unturned! He explains things well, is compassionate, and is a great listener. He "thinks outside the box."The appointment was not rushed and he was prompt. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Markowitz obviously closely reviewed my previous Dr's records and was able to set my mind at ease about my situation. I never felt rushed or that he wasn't totally tuned into my concerns. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Markowitz is outstanding. He took the time to discuss the latest cardiac treatment options and carefully monitored my condition for months before we jointly decided a procedure would be best. My condition has been fully resolved and my life has returned to what it was before my condition began. Dr. Markowitz was very thorough and understanding -- highly recommend.

Dr. Markowitz has a very deserving reputation as a skilled surgeon but also came across as a concerned human being. He wanted to know about the effects of the pacemaker and was very pleased to hear how the surgery changed my husband's life for the better. He also remembered having many conversations with our daughter and wanted to extend his regards to her. After our virtual meeting with him my husband and I were deeply moved by his warmth.

There is a reason Dr. Markowitz has over 70 five star reviews. He is fantastic. I can’t imagine any doctor knowing more about cardiology than Dr. M does. He is kind, thoughtful, compassionate and has great follow-up skills. He genuinely wants his patients to feel better and puts time and thought into his decision making. He will do additional research or whatever is necessary to ensure you have the best result possible and are feeling your best. If you know what a mensch is- Dr Markowitz is a brilliant mensch. So grateful I found him.

Professional, competent and compassionate describe Dr. Markowitz. He listens intently to questions and responds with answers that are understandable providing multiple options to address the issue. At the conclusion of an appointment with Dr. Markowitz you will feel that your best interests have been considered and that a solution to your problem will be forthcoming. After my experience with other EP cardiologists I feel confident that he is the best his specialized field has to offer.
