Dr. Tracy, her resident was excellent. Very caring and gave patient a through check up. When Dr. Kantor came in to the room, I felt she did not have patients care in her best interest. I was very disappointed in her attitude. Test results showed patients BNP results was in the thousands and had 42 pounds of fluid on, and when Dr. Tracy wanted to hospitalize, he went to discuss, and told us he was told no. Dr. Tracy is an excellent doctor. Dr. Kantor should learn from him.
