good experience.
Patient | October 29, 2017

Best heart doc I know!
Patient | October 26, 2017

I feel is not that concerned about any symptoms that I express. I have a medical background & I am not ignorant when it comes to symptoms, tests, concerns. My age maybe the reason there is not much concern.
Patient | October 25, 2017

Dr. Naflitan was trying to answer questions that really should have been asked of my arrhythmia specialist. This made the visit more difficult but he did his best.
Patient | October 23, 2017

I love Dr. Naftilan. I have been seeing him for years.
