Have you seen Dr. Allen Rafael?
Posted on November 13th, 2012
Everything you hate about doctors. Long wait times, double booked appointments, quick assembly line approach, and as many office visits and co-pays as they can possibly get out of you. He doesn't even have enough time to read your results properly (a nurse is going to do that) and if you do see him, he's going to be distracted by his pager constantly going off or being "on call" for other patients who obviously are more important than you. Choose anybody but him.
He saved my father's life :)

Dr. Rafael saw my father in an emergency situation at 11pm on a weeknight at a hospital this week. My father was having a heart attack. Earlier in the day by another Cardiologist, my father had an angiogram performed and 4 stents placed. Hours later, he had a severe heart attack. Dr. Rafael took my father back into procedure quickly, listened to the information the family had to say about the first procedure and used it to quickly diagnose and fix the problem. He was able to safely reach and achieve what the previous Cardiologist was not. In less than an hour, he took my father from near death to safe and comfortable. He took much time at midnight to explain and show to the family all pictures the problem, the procedure ,prognosis and nicely answered all of our questions. I do not have experience with his office, however I rate him highly in the situation that was presented to him. Thank you Dr. Rafael.

Dr raphael would not do an angigram on me even though i was very ill, losing witht lost 27lb. my primary is the one that said i needed an angigram. the test showed i had clogged arteries, put stents in weeks later i still wasn't feeling well dr. raphael said i should feel good once again my primary doctor ordered another angigram, dr rapeal said he didn't think it was necesary,but went ahead and did the test, the stents had clogged and i ended up having open triple by-pass.I was told women are different then men when it comes to heart problems. You'd think dr. raphael would have knowledge of that
