Patient Reviews
Oct 29, 2021
After my Cardiologist had prescribed many Afib meds that were ineffective, he referred me to Dr Vest for a Cardiac Ablation. In addition, a glowing recommendation came from a “medical professional friend”whose Father was treated successfully by Dr. Vest. My friend said, “Dr Vest was the absolute best in his field, and she wouldn’t trust anyone else with her Father’s Ablation.” Her father has been Afib free for several years. Dr. Vest is extremely competent, highly-skilled, empathic and compassionate. It was so refreshing to have a Dr. that actually listened to my concerns, and took his time to answer all my questions. Dr Vest explained the procedure in detail including what to expect post-op. His staff was also excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of an Electrocardiologist. My Ablation was performed on May 5, 2021, and time has proven it to be very successful. “Dr Richard Vest is the ABSOLUTE VERY Best.”
