Very clean, concise, and informative.

love Swedish clinic

Dr. Zivin was outstanding at discussing options, and making a personal connection, instilling confidence.

When I was young(er) I would see an elderly Doctor and be amazed at the amount of knowledge he has. Now I see Adam [...] and I'm thinking to myself. NOW here's a young Doctor that has my life in his hands and they don't shake, He tells me what I need to hear not what I want to hear, he busts my chops for not loosing weight, stopping cigars and cocktails. (The truth only hurts when it's supposed to) I had a medical procedure done by Adam and you know I am ELATED he was my Dr, and took such good care of me. Cant live without a heart or brain and Adam did great. [...]

I suffered a massive heart attack 2 1/2 years ago. Dr. Zivin is the very BEST cardiologist I have seen in or out of the hospital. I wish that he was my regular cardiologist. He is warm, friendly, great bedside manner and provides good information about procedures and potential benefits of procedure.

Appointment was less than 10 minutes, was prescribed meds. No tests, no additional information given. Would have appreciated handouts, been told if/when I should come back for a follow up, etc.

the main issue I have is him recommending ablation procedure for me, when he himself said he wouldn't know how it might effect me due to my [...]. I hope he follows up with dr [...] for me, to ensure that I make best decision for my situation.

Best provider ever

I have already recommended Dr. Zivin to someone in need of an electrophysiology specialist.

Dr. Zivin is awesome. Him & his staff took care of everything &really got me scheduled & approved for my procedure.He is wonderful at what he does & for my procedure everything went great - no stress at all for me.procedure ASAP. Dr. Zivin gave me the utmost of care.

[...] VERY GOOD.

It was an excellent visit. One of the best I've ever had in my life.
