We're trying something new with Top Care Areas.Was it helpful for you?YesNo

Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Patient Comments (5)
in Los Angeles, CA |
It's rare in the LA area to find a cardiologist who appreciates functional medicine and other non-traditional means to deal with cardio issues, rather than only reaching for the meds. She was thorough with me and did some informative tests to drill down a little, beyond a cholesterol and stress test. I am fan of her approach to medicine and would highly recommend Dr. Thaik.

I had several cardiologists before finally finding Dr. Thaik right in my own backyard, so to speak. Before making an appointment with her I watched two or three YOU TUBE spots & kept saying to myself, "yes, yes that's just what I think" over & over. She is so knowledgeable, not only medically speaking, but "humanness knowledge" She actually "listens" to what you have to say, whether its in agreement about a medicine or disagreement. She never talks down to you and I just hope she is here forever

I was so encouraged when I talked with Dr Thaik. She showed so much insight in to troubles I've had for a number of years and she spoke of ways that I could change and improve my health situation. I feel blessed to have found her. Shirley Ellis
