Review of Dr. Patton

- in Covington, GA |

Dr. Patton pays attention to what his patients tell him. He's incredibly knowledgeable but is not arrogant when talking with patients about their conditions. He uses common sense with his medical knowledge to treat patients. He doesn't just follow a book and treat people . He takes into account that everyone is different, reacts different etc. He's not a one size fits all with his treatment. He very much respects his patients and treats you as such. He personalizes ea individual treatment

Review of Dr. Grow

- in Athens, GA |

Wow! Dr. Grow is fantastic. We went in depth about my condition and he was excited tackle the issues that I am facing regarding my condition. We hit it off very well. His staff is also awesome, and I was so surprised when they told me that they got all my health records from my cardiologist in another state very quickly and without me having to worry that it would be dramatic. It pays to research well who your health provider will be, and it paid off here for me.

Review of Dr. Grow

- in Athens, GA |

Dr. Grow is a wonderful and caring doctor. I became a patient of Dr Grow after having a heart attack in the middle of the night. He was so professional, caring and has a wonderful bedside manner. I am truly grateful for the top notch care and after care I have received through him. I would highly recommend this doctor, he saved my life! The issue I was having could have been easily missed if so much concern and care had not been given. I am forever grateful! Thank you and God bless!

Review of Dr. Pohlel

- in Athens, GA |

I had 100% block of the LAD (Widowmaker coronary artery) and Dr. Pohlel and the team of Athens Cardiology saved my life. Dr.Pohlel insisted that I stay in ICU following the stent procedure to open the LAD. He recognized that part of my heart was damaged from the heart attack and that I needed surveillance to insure the best outcome. I'm sure that decision kept me alive. The outstanding care given by the Athens Regional ICU professionals following his decision did insure my successful recovery!

Review of Dr. Poole

- in Watkinsville, GA |

I'm giving Dr. Poole 5 stars only because the option isn't available to give him more. My husband had an extensive cardiac history including multiple stents, quadruple bypass surgery, and congestive heart failure coupled with the terminal cancer that recently called him home. Under Dr Poole's extraordinary guidance, my husband's heart began functioning normally again and did so until his death a few days ago. I cannot say enough good things about this amazing provider.

Review of Dr. Nilsson

- in Athens |

After a-fib & a-flutter ablations I had chest heaviness, inability to speak due to coughing, difficulty swallowing/digesting food, dangerously low BP & HR. When calls were finally returned, seemed dismissive. I implored PA to pls speak personally w/Dr. Nilsson. She called bk; sd he replied "it wasn't his fault" & for me to "go to an urgent care center." I wasn't trying to place blame!! Was seeking help fm surgeon I thot wd care for me thru healing process! Wd NEVER recommend him to loved one.

Review of Dr. Grow

- in Athens, GA |

Dr. Grow in my opinion is a very good cardiologist with a great bedside manner. I was sent to him after an overnight stay in the hospital and many tests. Luckily everything was fine but he took the time to talk to and listen to me. He also brought me back for another follow up just to be sure I hadn’t had anymore issues. My PCP likes him too. If you knew my PCP you’d understand why that’s a big deal. If you need a cardiologist, see Dr. Grow.
