Dr Faulkner is a wise, communicative and impressive physician. He engenders trust and takes the time to understand and discuss the patient's issues. He fits my criteria for being young, healthy and friendly. His manner is very pleasant.

Dr. Faulkner is my cardiologist. He listens to me & explains things thoroughly. I trust him enough to have him do my cardiac cath.

Review for Dr. Carter

Dr Williamson always takes the time to answer all of my questions. She truly seems to care about me as a person, not just “another patient”. I definitely recommend Dr Williamson.
