Scheduler:cold, rude, lecturing. How’s that for someone who needs help when they’re anguishing about an emergency level AFib? Dr. Athill - you seem nice in your video. Please advise your lions at the gate. It’s painful to be vulnerable with heart problems and deal with bad personalities. Would’ve been nice if office people had a good heart, Doctor. Kindness goes a long way. I’d guess that you would have wanted your father to be treated well. My grown children worry and want that for me too.

Amazing doctor!!! Professional, caring and brilliant! Dr. Athill took a long time explaining about my procedure and even had me watch a video and gave me a sample device to inspect to make sure I understood everything involved in my care. His intelligence and knowledge is staggering. This man really knows his business and has a God given gift. I am thankful that he is my doctor. He is saving my life and I am grateful and trust him completely.
