Patient Comments (4)

I've been a patient of Dr. King's since I was 11 years old. I'm 27 now. He is by far the most amazing Doctor I've ever met! I would trust him with my children in a heartbeat. When it comes to my cardiac care I never make a decision without discussing it with him first. I highly recommend him!!
