Dr Hart was very thorough. Brought up digitally my past medical records (prior stress tests) and primary care records. Retook my blood pressure (I was anxious first go round) which returned to normal levels. My primary had been concerned about my somewhat irregular heartbeat. Dr. Hart gave an in depth evaluation that allayed my fears.

I came to Dr. Hart because I believed my concerns weren't being heard by my former Physician. Dr. Hart listened to my concerns, and gave me options. Another thing I noticed was my former Dr never checked my body. Dr. Hart checks my body (listens to my heart, checks my abdomen, and my legs) to make sure my heart is doing its job. This makes me feel cared for.

Dr. Hart took the time that my mother needed to explain his thoughts regarding her condition. He was comforting to my mother who has unexpectedly been through so much. Dr. Hart also wrote a concise report following our visit which we read on the Montefiore portal. We are also happy with the follow-up test that Dr. Hart scheduled along with the office getting us going with our first appointment with the pacemaker / arrhythmia team.
