I like Dr. Discher very much. He is very informative without my asking questions and even more so if I ask questions. He listens well and answers all my question. I would recommend him to my family and/or friends.

Dr. Discher is a great guy. When I was in the hospital 2years ago I needed a follow up appointment after was released from hospital. Had a hard time finding a cardiologist to see me. All the appointments were 3 months out. Stumbled upon Dr. Discher and his office checked with him and I was told he would see me anytime in the next five days. We need more doctors like him. When I met him I new he was the cardiologists for me. Explained everthing in simple terms. I recommend Dr Discher to anyone that's looking for cardiologists and a great guy.
