“One aspect of Dr. Ben-Zur’s approach to patient care cannot adequately be assessed in a quantitative way: his empathy and compassion in the treatment of all of his patients. He is available to counsel and comfort his patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. His dedication to cardiology and patient care is truly exceptional. Indeed, he has not taken a vacation in many years. He is truly a doctor’s doctor. I recommend with great enthusiasm my colleague, Dr. Ben-Zur, for your medical care.”

“I will never forget one of Dr. Ben-Zur’s patients who had suffered a massive heart attack and needed intensive care for a very long time.

You don’t see many doctors like that.”
