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!
