I love Dr. Bestawros. He was thorough and ordered tests to ensure my heart was healthy. Very pleasant and younger looking than his picture.

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).

Feb. 2015 Dr. Bestawrous successfully completed a more complicated cardiac ablation due to a previous maze ablation done elsewhere (1st ablation lasted only 3 years). Since Dr Bestawrous operated on my heart I have continue to live a healthy and active life. He is a very caring, conscientious, well trained medical professional. I highly recommend Dr. Bestawros.

Dr. Bestawros is a very experienced and caring cardiologist. He takes the time to listen and discuss to issues and concerns, and offers clear and detailed explanations. I am very happy with the care I’ve received from him, and I can say I fully trust him with my cardiovascular health.
