"Truly blessed to have found this amazing doctor. I was told at a previous cardiology practice my issues were weight and anxiety related due to my age. I am a little over weight but not excessively obese. The issues I was having were occuring throughout my childhood when I weighed 90 lbs as well as into my adulthood and I eventually thought it was just normal to pass out due to the lack of care from other doctors. He took the time and listened to my concerns and referred my to the electrophysiology department where I was able to have testing done and found I have an issue with my sinus node. Apparently when I was blacking out and fainting I was having brief periods of my heart pausing too. This has literally been happening my entire life and I had no idea how serious it was. Now at the young age of 32 I have been blessed with a pacemaker which helps to prevent me from fainting.

this doctor's empathetic and understanding demeanor I would still be struggling. I can't say enough good things about this doctor. I'm so happy I had the privilege of being treated by him. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
