We would recommend *Dr. Flaherty to any person we know. His professional and social abilities are way beyond description. We are lucky to have my husband under his care. #1. Doctor.

I was made to feel I was the most important patient that day. Never felt *Dr. Flaherty or his staff was rushing to get to the next patient. Much appreciated.

Dr. Flaherty is the best! He makes me feel like I'm his only patient...time spent, care given, follow up...and of course, his expertise.

Amazed at the thoroughness of Dr. Flaherty, his assessment of my condition(s), likelihood of good results with my current status, and steps to confirm (or modify) plan of treatment. Third cardiologist I have seen (over 59 years), and Dr. James Flaherty is a "rock star."
