      I was seen by Dr, Ahmar for chest pains his staff was extremely helpful and very pleasant. Dr. Ahmar took time to explain me my condition at length, i was very concerned and anxious prior to going to his office after my visit I felt and understood what my issues are, staff and physicians were very caring and i was really impressed by his bed side manners I will highly recommend him if somebody is looking for a cardiologist.

      I and my wife have been going to Dr Ahmar for many years and I can heartily (no pun intended!) recommend him. I had a serious heart incident several years ago and Dr Ahmar was instrumental in saving my life. Need I say more?

      in Apopka, FL |
      Dr. Ahmar takes the time to explain my medical condition so I completely understand my results and goes over in great detail his recommendation for treatment. When I have questions, he listens and again answers them until I completely understand. I feel like he genuinely cares for me as a patient.

      in Debary, FL |
      Dr Ahmar has been my Cardiologist for 5 years, he has seen me through a major crisis and has monitored my progress with diligence and kindness. He is the only Dr in 30 years to bring my blood pressure down to normal making me feel wonderful! His staff are professional, knowledgeable and very friendly and kind! A good overview of a Dr is his staff. I would not hesitate to reccomend him to anyone looking for a Cardiologist that cares about your recovery and maintaining your health!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
