Although a little out of the way, I've always used NW Cardiology since I was taken there via ambulance after my first heart attack. I've only had two cardiologists (with Dr. Benzuly providing the longest service) since my first visit. I have always had great care and attention from the staff in the NW Cardiology unit.
