Dr. Lichtenberg was the first cardiologist at the Heart Center I encountered after suffering a heart attack several years ago. After several visits I attempted to ask him about the side effects of statin drugs, but he get extremely upset, even though I was calm and respectful, and literally got a few inches away from my face and in so many words, he angrily told me not to argue with him, just take the pills if you want to lower your cholesterol. Without any exaggeration, he was red-faced and looked like a mad scientist. He actually scared me. I have never had such an experience with a doctor, or any other profession individual. I know have a different doctor at the same Heart Center.

Dr Lichtenberg is an outstanding doctor. He is knowledgeable about the latest advances in cardiology and explains things in terms you can understand. He is always willing to take the time needed to discuss things and answer my questions. He never makes you feel like he is in a rush. He has been my doctor for over 8 years and I'm glad to have him treat me.
