His wait time is ridiculous. I waited for my husband to be seen over 6 hours for Results only. He needs to not schedule so many patients if he can't see them all. 2 hrs, maybe 3, is manageable, but 5 plus is abuse!

Sadly I would not recommend this doctor to my friends nor family unless you do not plan on doing anything else the day of their appointment as wait times are outrageous. Twice this week I left after waiting over 2 and half hours after my scheduled appointment time. Both times patients arriving at least an hour after me began complaining that they had been waiting too long were taken in before me...the lesson here is those who make a scene and complain loudly are seen first. I will not be returning and will look for another cardiologist. Staff is not professional either. I waited 6 minutes before being acknowledged at the front desk, and then all I was asked without any eye contact was, "name?"...no hello, good afternoon...Wow! Then after a busty woman went in for a holter that was put on by a young man, he and the young woman behind the desk were making inappropriate remarks about the busty woman who had just left...talk about unprofessional.. unbelievable. Dr. get rid of your staff

He found EXACTLY what was wrong with my heart with just 3 tests (2 of which i had already done with a different doctor who didn’t think anything was wrong)! He listens to his patients and really does everything he can for you!

Appointment for 86 year old elderly was at 1pm and waited in the waiting room naked, in a paper gown until 7:30pm. Made a complaint at 4:30pm and doctor said we had the choice to leave if we wanted. How is this professional?

The talent of this particular doctor is not at all what I will be revieweing today, nor his character or anything having to do with the way he practices medicine. My BIGGEST gripe is that an appointment is scheduled, as a patient, I show up ON TIME, and have to wait FOUR, almost FIVE hours before I get to see the doctor. I do not know if he is overbooked by his staff or if he is aware that this is being done but either way, it is ridiculous. As a “professional“ patient who has been dealing with doctors my whole life, I understand there will be some wait time but when I have an appointment scheduled for 2:00 PM, and do not get called in to see him until almost 7:00 PM, there is a serious problem. Not only that but considering the nation’s current COVID-19 epidemic, there are no social distancing precautions in place. I wish I were exaggerating but sadly, I am not. Book less or expedite the process because it is absolutely ridiculous.
