My last visit was great - As I am already a patient, I wanted the OK to undergo a colonoscopy elsewhere, and Dr. Ben-Zur and his team quickly did ECG, stress ECHO (incl. treadmill) test and within just a bit over an hour I was pronounced good to go. It took me no time to book the appointment and with colon procedure scheduled for just a few days away, I was pleased to get 'worked in' at this cardiologist's office with little notice. Kudos to Dr. Ben-Zur and everyone at his office.

I am so thankful I found this practice and especially Dr. Ben-Zur. My first cardiologist was through the hospital and i never felt comfortable and cared. He was always in rush. I searched around for another physician and was recommended to Dr Ben-Zur. Talk about a wonderful physician. He talks to you like a person with genuine care. He spends time and doesn't rush through his appointments. He explains things very thoroughly. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. If you need the BEST, Dr Ben

I was frequent rapid heartbeats, and so I was referred by my insurance to this office, I felt kinda nervous at first, but then when I got to the office I felt so much better. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, it does not take forever for them to call you, the forms to fill out are not the ones that take forever to finish with all of them. The office is super clean and it looks fairly new, the nurse was very gentle and attentive, it didn't feel like those cold offices with cold people

This man is saving my life. I see him all the time and he never gives up on me. Dr BenZur and his staff are the nicest most accommodating people ever! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment. When I came to him my blood pressure was out of control. He continues to prompt me into a better lifestyle.

Dr Ben-Zur is undoubtedly the best in his field. I recently sought a second opinion for a previously diagnosed condition of atrial fibrillation. Dr Ben-Zur provided me with a choice of treatment options, taking the time to explain the pros and cons of each treatment and I subsequently opted for and successfully underwent cardiac ablation which has resolved this longstanding problem. The care and attention shown to both myself and my family was without doubt the best I have received from any doct

Having been unwell recently I was so fortunate to be treated under the expert skill and care by Dr. Ben-Zur and his team. Without exaggerating Dr Ben-Zur literally saved my life after completely out of the blue I suffered a heart attack. As well as having the wonderful ability to perform the required procedures, Dr Ben-Zur has a calming and genuinely caring manner, which made us all feel comfortable and re-assured under very anxious circumstances. Whilst I have now undergone the necessary treat

My mother became a patient of Dr. Ben-Zur's shortly after her other cardiologist retired. If not for Dr. Ben-Zur's advice for my mother to have her mitral valve replacement surgery ASAP, she might not be here today. He is brilliant, up on all the latest medical advances, and refers appropriately to the best cardiac surgeons. He is now managing mom post-operatively, and she loves him. not just for his expertise, but also for his great personality and caring attitude.

How can you possibly evaluate kindness, sensitivity, and supreme intelligence when it effects if you live or die. Evaluating something as profound and dire as this feels banal to write, I think Dr. Ban-Zur for saving my life.

I have known Dr. Ben-Zur since January 2012. He truly turned my whole life around by placing me on a vegetable diet, convincing me to exercise regularly and changing prescriptions. He is one of a kind absolutely the best doctor you can find. I personally know of a few patients whose lives he saved. His office is super-friendly and open 6 days a week!

Dr. Ben-Zur was the cardiologist on call when I arrived at the ER after a bout of chest pain, sweating and throwing up - EMS got me on track on the way to the hospital with Nitro - but the symptoms returned after arriving at the hospital. Dr. Ben-Zur performed a Heart Cath and implanted a stent. I'm a healthy 61 year old with no prior issues, so this was a frightening experience for me and my family. He made the event so much less stressful with his positive attitude, professional presence and w

I have been a patient of Dr. Ben-Zur for approximately 20 Yrs. and cannot praise him enough. He has enhanced the quality of my life many times. He has saved my life once and my wife's life twice. He LISTENS to us. His recommendations are practical and conservative. He explains everything to us. He gives us as much time as we need. He understands us and is always pleasant and affable. He is a credit to the medical profession. Heart trouble often comes with depression and his advice, empathy and e

Dr. Ben-Zur is the most phenomenal doctor I have ever had the great fortune to have treat me. Dr. Ben-Zur came highly recommended and I understand why - the doctor and his entire staff put me at ease, were professional, knowledgeable, thorough, patient, understanding & brilliant. I consider all of them my family and this extraordinary group aren't located in a sterile & unfriendly office, they are the sole residents of beautiful 1 story building. I can't thank them enough, but I can say I thank
