Dr. Rawitscher is the best cardiologist and medical doctor that I have ever been to. He is professional, attention to detail and totally sincere doctor. He gave me the correct medication to lower my blood pressure. He is the greatest! He takes his time to explain the blood tests and any concerns that you might have. Always there for you when you ask him questions on your medical portal.
