I found the office to be rather dirty (for example the restroom has a specimen collection cabinet in it that hasn't seen any cleaning in 10 years), but all the doctors were professional, kind, and thorough. The nurses were also nice. The wait was very bad though.

This doctor is very knowledgeable and I can tell he has been practicing for years. I met with him in his office and he asked me several questions about my symptoms. He was very thorough and listened to all my concerns.His staff was very friendly and I was hearing great things about him in the office from an intern that he treats his patients and employees well. Ekg, echocardiogram, stress test,, PAD test all done in the office! What a convenience that is instead of going to an outside facility. They even supply you with the holter monitor if needed and you have the option to either pick wireless holter (where you can shower with it on) or the traditional holter monitor. I had a good experience and will go back to him again.

He does not practice as an internist nor a geriatric doctor, only does cardiology. Appointment was not listed at his office, even though I got confirmation from ZocDoc. He did not have the electronic forms that I spent 25 minutes fillingout on ZocDoc and confirmed as transmitted successfully. Database needs to be updated for this doctor.
