If my brother or father were a Doctor, I would expect the treatment that I receive with Dr. Siegel. He works at one of the most respected, busiest Hospitals in the country, yet spends so much time with you, it's as if you're the only patient he has.Every concern, question I have is addressed and in my case, re-addressed numerous times. I NEVER feel rushed. I always leave my appts. with him feeling uplifted and hopeful about my health. I know I can call him at any time with any concern I have and he will call me back immediately. He has diagnosed me and followed my condition closely, referred me to an amazing surgeon and visited me every day that I was in the Hospital recovering. When it comes to your heart, look no further. This Man is a Saint.
i met the good doctor at cedars. he was working with noel merz (another talented physician) he oversaw my stress echo and interpreted the results. robert seigel impressed me greatly. he was present for the entire duration of my testing. (my cardiologists from cleveland and MGH pale by comparison--both of whom were harried/hurried and distinctly non communicative. the lack of followup at cleveland and MGH border on negligent) dr. siegel is a brilliant communicator-he empowers patients by arming them with information. he worked to ensure that i received the maximum yield from my testing. he made himself available for followup questions and clearly stared that if i need anything further that i should feel free to contact him. though i have not seen him in several years-- i do not hesitate to recommend him to any and all. he is deserving of more than mere stars.
What can one say about Dr. Siegel? Being that I had only seen him once in my life, my opinion about him would be: when it came to me, my heart and my life, Dr. Siegel is the one person I would recommend to anybody having heart problems. He is affectionately known as my "second opinion doctor" because I transferred to him from Loma Linda, whom I thought had a very good heart institute closer to where I lived. It turned out my cardiologist at Loma Linda did not appreciate my symptoms of fainting, daily chest pains and shortness of breath. Dr. Siegel listened to what I had to say and appreciated my symptoms. It tookDr. Siegel to recognize my need for immediate surgery and I trusted him implicitly with my life. I now have Dr. Siegel as my cardiologist and I refer to him and his team of associates as the "A" team for a reason. It is because of him that I am still alive!
