Dr. Provias was the first cardiologist that I have seen who actually cared about me and didn't just ignore everything that I had to say. again, I am "young" (28) so having to go to a cardiologist is already scary. He made me feel super comfortable and didn't make me feel like I was annoying him.

I have said it before and I will say it again...Dr. Tim Provias is a true rock star!!! He is probably one of the very best doctors in the entire world...interns and residents should shadow him in order to learn how they should care for and treat their patients. I cannot heap enough praise on him! God bless him, and we are so lucky to have him as our cardiologist!
