He is the Best!

He has been my husband's Cardiologist since March of 2015. He saved my husband's life at that time and has been monitoring him closely ever since. He is so kind, always listens, answers all questions, and never rushes you.. We highly recommend him.

Good Doc

Good guy, kind of a studious 'Poindexter' type who is respectful and likable. I'd see him again and I'd recommend him to others.

RIDICULOUS

Dr. Converse was dismissive and did not listen to what I was saying to him. I later found out I had a very serious problem with my aorta. While I have been treated very well by other doctors in the group, I will never see Dr. Converse again. I think 2 visits were enough. I have had 2 heart attacks and now am facing challenges having my aorta repaired after it was left untreated for a long time. Thank goodness my pain doctor sent me for an MRI or I may not have had the opportunity to write this.
