Not sure I’ve ever met a doctor as kind, patient and comforting as Dr. Insel. He performed an echo on me himself (didn’t delegate to a technician) and walked me through every step of the way. Truly thoughtful and amazing guy.

Dr. Insel was recommended by a friend, and current patient, as I was in the market for a reliable Cardiologist. The reception area is small, however, it is inviting. After I paid my co-payment, my wait time was about five-minutes. Dr. Insel is warm and personable and I felt at ease while he performed a thorough examination of my heart. He was also receptive to answering my many questions in regards to my sugar levels and exercise program.

I feel really lucky to have Dr. Insel. He is such a great doctor and a person who cares about his patients, treats extremely well, listens to the complains, explains issues/ conditions. He is such a smiling and polite person, the patients would feel much better right after they meet him. He was found to be very learned and he gave me one of his articles, which was very helpful to maintain a healthy life. The staffs in his office are also very nice, professional and smiling. I definitely recommend to my friends to the doctor.

I would highly recommend Dr. Insel. Dr. Insel did not rush my appointment, was clear when explaining my situation, cracked a joke or two to lighten the mood, acted professional, and left me feeling like he genuinely cared. I had the impression this is just the type of person he is and he was just being himself. I honestly wish all my doctors were like Dr. Insel.
