Dr. Phares cardioverted my husband for Afib. My husband appeared very calm & trusting w/this dr.
Patient | October 23, 2018

He sat and listened to all my questions and asked if I had any more. He then got up to leave. I stopped him and told him that I appreciated him listening to me and asking if I had any more questions. So many times the doctors will be headed to the door and you cannot get your questions answered.
