i am very thankful and blessed that i have Dr. Dennis McNamara as my heart doctor!! After seeing a few other doctor's when my illness began 5 years ago, i was just another patient to them, and I didn't feel that really were concerned about my health. I always remember leaving their doctor offices very disappointed. i can honestly say that 'health wise' since seeing Dr. Dennis McNamara, i have never felt better! He takes the time to answer any questions i might have and i have, talks with me about my medicines i'm currently taking and i have never felt he was in any kind of rush or that he had to go to another appt. Dr McNamara provides the BEST service of any doctor that i have had to see over the past 30+ years.

This was my 1st visit to Dr. Mcnamara having just moved to Pittsburgh in December. my doctor in Philadelphia recommended Dr. Mcnamara. And now I know wht! Dr. McNamara is not only knowledgeable but compassionate and caring, taking the time needed to ask me questions so he understands my history, as well as explaining my plan of care in language I can understand!
