The Best!

Dr. Hecht was both my primary physician and cardiologist and has been only my cardiologist for many years. He is a true professional, competent , extremely knowleeable, caring and compassionate. I trust his judgment and always feel better after I have seen and spoken to him.

Doc needs to learn more about Women's health

I think this doc may be great for men but he needs to learn more about women. I was having premature ventricular contractions and I did a lot of research on reasons why they might be happening. It corresponded to my monthly hormonal cycle. When I expressed this to him he was very dismissive and told me to stop trying to find a reason, and just learn to live with it and my only option was beta blockers if it really bothered me. I finally went to a well known female cardiologist who specialized in women and when I mentioned my thoughts to her she said " of course--the heart is very sensitive to hormonal fluctuations and said beta blockers was a last resort and that some people find relief with magnesium supplements which I had heard about and it helped greatly.
