Patient Comments (4)
in Alta Loma, CA |
Been a patient 14 years, initially with congestive heart failure. First doctor wanted heart transplant. After asking a nurse where she would take her husband if he had my condition, she said Dr. Chris. He took over my case, used slower approach and I never had the heart transplant. Overcame congestive heart failure but obviously have ongoing heart issues, for which I see Dr. Chris. Other than unusually long waits in his waiting room, he is patient and answers all questions. Staff if friendly.
