The medical office is run similar to an assembly line. If you have questions, they won't be answered the doctor is always ready to move to the next patient.I was scheduled for a stress test but when I couldn't briskly walk on the tread mill due to rthritis, I was rushed into the next room and told to wait out front for another 30 minutes.I have a hole in my heart but getting info is almost impossible, time to move on to next patient; end of doctor visit.Treated coldly by staff, would not go back.

I'm a recently Critical Care RN, so my standards are impossibly high for my docs. Dr K is extremely personable, ie listens to you, treats you like a priority and a person, not a "case." His knowledge is superior, his ability and willingness to explain his concearns for your heart issues is unsurpassed. He brings you and your family into the decision making process about procedures, like Nuclear Treadmill vs Catheterization, Stents, Surgery. Follow-up care excellent.
