This cardio is so unprofessional. If he plans to change a patient's medications, he ought to tell me what, how, and when correct? Nope. Rude, impolite.

Excellent & compassionate doctor
Lodi, CA |
I did not feel like Dr. Primack listened to my concerns regarding a specific genetic disease and how it may affect my heart health in the future. Instead of addressing my concerns he alluded to me feeling anxious, and minimized the symptoms I was feeling, when in fact I was asking for clarification. Instead of taking the time to educate me, which would benefit us both, he left the room abruptly after I brought up my concerns. I waited in the exam room for over 45 minutes to be basically ignored.
in Lodi, CA |
No clear explanation why so many test were performed, and no prognosis.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Primack's Care Philosophy

In heart care, there are often a lot of options for a single problem. The trick is in figuring out the best option, and that is entirely unique to you, your life and your needs. For me, this challenging aspect is stimulating...and rewarding. The reward comes from bettering your life. When you have a heart concern, positive change is worth working for. It's as simple as that. I'm here to make a true and lasting difference in your health and your life.
