Five Stars

I wish there were more doctors like him. He answers all your questions, and he doesn't rush through your appointment. He is a kind, caring Dr. Which is a rarity these days in my opinion. I felt very at ease with him and I'm a nervous person,. That being said, I've recommended him to others who may need a cardiologist.
