Dr Abu was great. He addressed my concerns. I came to him for a second opinion. He was recomended to me by a friend. He answered my questions. When it comes to your heart I was a little freaked out. I left there feeling alot better

Dr. Abu is wonderful. I trust him with my life and the lives of my family. He is the way a doctor should be. My regular doctor is Dr. P. Patel. He is the one that sometimes discusses my medications. This was my first visit with Dr. Abu, but he has treated my father in law and my wife. He is the best doctor ever.

I felt very comfortable that Dr. Abu listened to my history and concerns and that he prescribed the appropriate tests to obtain the results of my current state of health.
Patient | April 15, 2018

Dr. Abu-Haleman is one of the most thorough and friendly doctors I have ever met. He was able to straighten out some very confusing instructions I had received from being in the hospital just the previous week. I would always recommend him as a cardiologist. (That's the same opinion I get when I mention his name to the hospital personnel at St. Thomas Rutherford. He is obviously the best in Murfreesboro.).
Patient | April 10, 2018

Dr. Abu-Halimah was extremely knowledgeable, supportive and even funny. Would be glad to recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Abu showed the greatest care and concern of any specialist I've ever seen. Bedside manner was such that I felt heard, informed and confident that I was in good hands. I would recommend Dr. Abu to my dearest loved ones.
