ABSOLUTELY, Dr. Nashan was wonderful, he answered my questions, asked me questions, and I felt very at ease with him. I usually prefer women doctors because they will know my aches and pains and concerns about my body, but the doctor I was referred to couldn't see me UNTIL OCTOBER 29TH!!!!! Wowwww, I could drop dead by then if there was a problem!!!! So I accepted an appointment with Dr. Nishan, and I am very HAPPY/GLAD that I did. His warmth and caring comes through.

If I wrote all of the time/effort Dr Nish has spent regarding my heart care, I'd be writing a Michener Novel. He and his staff are truly a credit to the Cone Heart Care Program.
