Dr. George Jabbour has the following 2 specialties
- Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Disappointed in Rushed Visit
Self-verified patient of Dr. George Jabbour - Posted on October 1st, 2018
It was a first visit with the doctor following open heart surgery. We had a list of questions. First question answered was very obviously incorrect. The second question was danced around. He was in such a rush to move on to the next patient that no more questions were addressed. We expected blood work and an echo or ultra sound since the patient's response to the question how are you doing was "a shrug of the shoulders" meaning I don't know. Did not even ask why the uncertainty. The least he could have done was taken a stethoscope and listened to the heart, and that did not even happen. As we left our thought was that could have been done in a phone conversation but then why even bother with that. An open heart surgery patient deserves better than this. He is highly skilled but lacks in taking time with patients. It saddens my heart to have to write such a review; but in fairness to those who are searching for a doctor, they need to know this.
Dr.Jabbour is an excellent doctor!
