      My mother is new to NoVa and had not found a cardiologist in the area. She went to the hospital with chest pains, and Dr. Abou-Ghazala saw her there for the first time. We were very impressed with him, and he spent a lot of time explaining the tests that he wanted to do, as well as the results that he found. We saw him once again at his office, and we have total confidence that he is an excellent cardiologist, as well as a very kind and caring person! His office staff is great also!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
