Atrial Fibrillation Ablations
Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Treatment
Did Cardiac Ablation. Dr. Bestawros was pleasant, easy to talk with about condition, great communicator, empathetic, upfront, full disclosure, realistic, reassuring. I felt informed. He did an excellent ablation and I felt much better the even the evening after the procedure. First morning after ablation, physically feeling very good - so much better than I've felt in a long time, actually energetic and positive. Team got back to me about meds super fast. Impressive care and service. Now it's up to my body to heal.

I had a new patient visit with Dr. Bestawros at the recommendation of my PCP. My prior cardiologist left. I’m really glad to have him review tests and procedures that been done. He was thorough and it was easy to discuss arrhythmia. My history started over sixty years ago as a child. I have confidence in his evaluation.
Great visit … 1st time with this Dr .. easy to talk to , explained condition & treatment options.

Dr. Bestawros was great. Not only did he seem very knowledgeable (to be expected), but he spent considerable time to explain my present condition, expectations for the future, and potential 'treatments' in the future. He also made the comment that given a choice of future treatments, much depends upon my personal feelings about medicaation vs. procedure. And that he would take some time for him to fully understand my preferences / feeling. I've never had a doctor say that kind of thing to me.
I very much like Dr. Bestawros, and highly recommend him to others with considtions similar to mine (afib).
