He helped me and my family be at ease with my bypass surgery. His skill was excellent. His bedside manner was outstanding. He went above and beyond to assure me prior to and following all procedures. I highly recommend him and his office staff for your cardiac surgical needs. He made a difficult time in my life, a process I was comfortable with. That is "PRICELESS." Thank you to Dr. Sawaqed.
