Great Doctor

My father, who was visiting from Florida, was admitted to Williamson Medical Center with CHF and Dr. Phares was the cariologist who saw him. Dr. Phares was outstanding in working out the proper medicines to bring him back into balance. After my father was discharged, we had an emergency after hours and called the emergency service at Dr. Phares office. He returned our call within 5 minutes time. I was astounded at his professionalism and caring attitude. He is a top drawer physician and a true asset to St. Thomas Heart!
