Patient Comments (1)

I've been under his care since mid-2001 when I was diagnosed w Cardiomopathy so I have total trust in him. Very straighforward but usually you're in and out in 30 minutes, including the BP and weight check w the nurse assistant. I just wish he would have more time to explain and answer questions.
