Cardiology | Male | 56 years old

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.Read more

Dr Ben-Zur saved my life's and he is saving life everyday. I have been under his cardiac care for the last 12 years. He diagnosed me with mitral valve prolapse causing atrial arrhythmia. Subsequently, I underwent open heart surgery/MAZE procedure with him. Today, I feel great and I don't take any medications. I and the world love him.

He is an amazing Doctor. He saved my life 12 years ago and had become my mentor in life. We will like we are family and wouldn't know what we would do with his loving care. He is there 24/7. No doctor has this dedication to his practice. We love him.
in Calabasas, CA |
We saw Dr. Ben-Zur in regards to my nephew's heart arrhythmias called SVT. He was extremely helpful in explaining his condition. He performed radiofrequency SVT ablation which saved us many, many ER visits. As far as I'm concerned, Dr. B saved my nephew's life. He's one of the best you could consult.

It's been 5 years since Dr. Ben-Zur first diagnosed my daughter with chronic congestive heart failure. So much has happened since then and when people have asked me how we got through it, I have to give credit to Dr. Ben-Zur and his amazing staff. Even in the scariest moments, we find strength through Dr.Ben-Zur’s calm and competent approach. Sure enough, things improve and we carry on with even greater confidence. He is always so respectful, offering us as much time as we need to ask our seemin

Great new facility, courteous staff, and excellent care. Dr. B really takes the time EVERY time to examine you, ask you what's going on, and personalize your care for that very moment, rather than making assumptions or going on autopilot as some doctors do. He's also excellent at educating without lecturing, which is great.

My name is Hadas. I am 60 years old and I have seen quite a few doctors in my life and there is no body as dedicated as Dr Ben-Zur. Dr. Ben-Zur has excellent bedside manner, great knowledge, and really cares about his patients. I was really impressed - he spent extra time answering my questions! It's such a rarity these days. I highly recommend Dr. Ben-Zur if you're looking for a great cardiologist.

Dr Ben-Zur is not only the most excellent Doctor that I seen, but also the most compassionate. His knowledge and understanding of all my Healy needs far exceeded my expectations.

Much love for him and his amazing staff.

I could literally write a book on all of the positive things about Dr. B. He is extremely intelligent, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, understanding - if you are lucky enough to be his patient you are truly blessed. He is truly an exceptional doctor and human being. He is what every doctor should be and what I wish more doctors would be. He is beyond the best of the best and I am so grateful he is in Tarzana.

One of the kindest, smartest, and best physicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. His bedside manner is impeccable and he has taken care of me and my husband very well. We really enjoy going to him. All the other doctors we asked, said to go to him. When a physician is that highly recommended by his peers, then he is a very good doctor. He has lived up to our expectations and surpassed them. Best physician we ever had.

I can't say enough good things about The Cardiovascular Inst. In a world of drones, this place REALLY cares about your health and sincerely treats you as a person.

Dr. Ben-Zur’s custom is to treat the whole person, not just the symptom du jour. In my case he has treated high blood pressure, cholesterol, insomnia, burns, chronic pain and any number of transient issues. Over time that has led me to become healthy for the first time in years. I am fit, blood pressure is way down and I sleep well. I am blessed to have him as my Physician.

Friendly, courteous staff. Prompt. Minimal waiting time. Caring physician..
in New Castle, Indiana |
Dr. Ben-Zur is the best doctor I have ever been to...ever! The first time I saw him I was in the ER for erratic heartbeats to the point of fainting. He just happened to be on call. What a blessing that was! (This was in 1998.) I ended up having a few ablutions and a pacemaker. I'm now on my 2nd pacemaker. In 2018 I'll be ready for my 3rd. I live in Indiana now, but wish I could have Dr. Ben-Zur do my next one.
