Wonderful Doctor

Posted on September 28th, 2017

I have been going to see Dr. Nishikawa for more than 15 years for atrial fibrillation. He always spends a lot of time with me and explains everything clearly. He is also open to natural approaches to healing, something that is very unusual among allopathic doctors. He is knowledgeable and proactive – makes sure I have all the tests I need to to maintain my health; and responsive to concerns – he listens and takes appropriate action. I highly recommend him. At his new practice (Houston Cardiovascular Associates), the wait time has decreased enormously – but I don't mind waiting for him; he's that good. And all the nurses and office staff and friendly and helpful.

Dr Nishikawa is a phenomenal cardiologist

Posted on May 9th, 2012

Dr. Nishikawa saved my husband"s life five times. He has a wonderful bedside manner, is very concerned with your health and seeks out the answers to health problems. He spends whatever time is necessary with you and answers any questions you may have. It's true you may have to wait an hour or so, but it is truly worth the wait. There is no cardiologist better than Dr Nishikawa. The office staff works very diligently to make sure all patients are taken care of in a timely manner and when medically necessaryat times jumps through hoops to accommodate patient

HORRIBLE office staff!!!!

Posted on February 16th, 2010

The office staff is absolutley horrible. They are extremley rude and unprofessional. Dr. Nishikawa is excellent, but due to the rudeness of his staff, I will never return.
