Dr. Bonow is the doctor I trust the most . Many years ago he gave me the cocktail of medicines that other doctors in England and France considered perfect for me, and some even said these are what kept me in good shape (i.e. alive)

I feel so fortunate to be cared for by Dr Robert Bonow--he is absolutely the most brilliant, caring, innovative and passionate physician who is very easy to talk to, listens carefully to my huge list of questions, advises me and shares his incredible wealth of knowledge in a way that is very easy for the lay person to understand and clearly demonstrates his incredible expertise and breadth of knowledge and experience in cardiology...he consistently also makes sure that I understand his recommendations, solutions, etc and if I have any questions. I also see how he interacts with the residents, nurses, etc and can easily tell he is inspiring and also views the entire staff-as a team which works together to make every effort to keep the patient well. I value my professional relationship with Dr Bonow and his team and am very grateful to be his patient!!
