Review for Dr. Gleed

Dr. Pamulapati is new to our area and such a wonderful addition. She was so thorough in explaining everything. Without her, we would not have realized my dad's life threatening condition until it was too late. We greatly value her clinical expertise and willingness to list.

Review for Dr. Pamulapati

Dr. Crawley was so knowledgeable and helpful when dad was in the hospital. She explained things in detail, sat down and spent probably 30 mins. asking about his history. I felt she really cared. She has both knowledge and empathy making her a wonderful provider.

Dr Albrecht is one fine young man and as a Doctor he is very interested in your health he wants you to ask questions. He is very knowledgeable, he's the kind of doctor that everyone needs. I would recommend Dr Albrecht to anyone.

Only seen Anaya-Cisneros 3 times. He really listens and helps me understand our treatment plan. I say our treatment plan because he and I actually talk frankly about my treatment options

Review for Dr. Gleed

This cardiologist is excellent. He took so much extra time to review my fathers case and explain things in a way my father could understand. Dr Anaya truly cares for his patients and is one of a kind.

She only spends like 4 minutes with me for a 10 minute ofice wait, and 7 minute nurse exam and it doesnt help my anxiety. I feel rushed and kinda forced to hurry. I also dont like the judgemental looks or the i dont believe you tone of voice. The longest i was in their office was 20 minutes.

Dr. Kumar was condescending, arrogant, and old school (aka, a pill pusher). Zero interest in determining the underlying pathology to explain/resolve symptoms. A total waste of my time and money. Please find a different doctor to see.

My only complaint that really isn't Dr. Werth's fault is scheduling of appointments. Even being an established patient I still have to wait a month to get into to see him. If I go to the ER I may not get my first choice doctor at this clinic.
