Dr. Ben-Zur's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ben-Zur "The Cardiovascular Institute of Greater Los Angeles, Heart Rhythm, and Interventional Cardiology Center is dedicated to offering a patient-centered approach to practicing medicine, providing world-class, state-of-the-art heart care. WAITING AREAWhile our patient waiting room is very nice, we don't want patients waiting. We want a patient to be seen once they arrive in the office. If you are given an appointment time that's the time you're seen. We don't believe in long waits in a waiting room and then an additional wait in an exam room. While this may surprise you, that's the way we practice medicine. We believe that our business should be geared towards patients needs. SAME DAY OR NEXT DAY APPOINTMENTS, ALWAYSWe are able to take patient appointments the same day or the next day. We want to be able to see you when you need us. We take pride in the fact that our patients are always able to get appointments. At our office, you will never be told that our only available appointment is weeks or even months away. ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS (EMR)In our practice, we are proud to say that we utilize Electronic Medical Records. What does this mean to you as a patient? Employing a state of the art EMR system means that your records are available 24 hours a day. For example, if you were on vacation somewhere and a physician or hospital needed your records, we could electronically send your records quickly and accurately. EMR also eliminates the hassle of missing charts and missing information. Some patients are concerned about the safety of their medical records, but with an EMR system, your records are actually more secure than paper charts, as only authorized individuals may view your records. EXCELLENT HOURS AND CONVENIENCEWe offer excellent hours working around your busy schedule to deliver the very best cardiovascular care available. We see patients 6 days a week (Monday – Friday and Sunday) as early as 6:00 A.M. These patients- friendly hours allow our patients to come in when their schedule permits thus avoiding missed work and traffic. We are usually able to give our patients same day appointments. The emphasis in our practice is on quality. PROCEDURES PERFORMED IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIAGNOSIS IS CONFIRMEDAs soon as a diagnosis is confirmed, Dr. Ben-Zur is able to schedule procedure shortly thereafter. We want our patients to get the treatment they need in the shortest amount of time possible, so they get back to good cardiovascular health."
