Very pleased with visit. I felt he was listening to my issues, asked approximate follow-up questions, and tried to help me understand my problem. Very prompt communications. I had recently seen another cardiologist for my problem and was looking for someone in whom I could have confidence that I was being heard.

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.

Dr. Hart is an extremely thoughtful, highly collaborative physician who shows great care for my condition and state of health. He reviews all the diagnostics, options and potential outcomes in very clear detail in very open conversation. His curiosity and desire to get the right answer for the patient clearly motivate his work! Also as soon as he gets any new results he calls me directly, including evenings, hugely appreciated. Extremely glad he is my doctor!
