I've usually been pleased over the many years with Swedish.. One very bad experience several years ago in Emergency and demands that I come in for check personally when renewing blood thinner when I had been handling by phone for 4 years. Decision to go on Eliquis but SO expensive. Has been very satisfactory however. Have been grateful for heart care by Dr Wells over the years.

Dr Wells was great. Articulate, and listened to what I said, and answered my questions. I learned more about the PVCs that I have in one short visit with him than all visits to previous cardiologists combined.

Ablation patient
It was an incredible medical experience as he was so clear about what was going on, listens carefully, is a really brilliant cardiologist, has a very caring manner and is a genuine, great doctor. I and his other patients are so fortunate to have had his expertise and his quality care. Settle is fortunate to have him!

Dr Wells, has terrible bedside manners (looking at this watch notification every 2 mins during our visit). He lacks patience, professionalism and has an attitude.

Arrhythmia was the problem, and when ablation did not make it stop, I was treated like it was my fault. When I messaged that I was still sliding into an irregular rhythm, I was told to send an EKG, which I did. Then I was told to keep taking the meds. When it was nearing my 3 month post op, I received a phone call saying that Dr. Wells was going to be unavailable until almost 5 months after the surgery. I had a non-refundable plane ticket for my appointment. On 75 mg/day metopronol, & not happy

A year ago on Sept 22, Dr. Wells fixed my "broken" heart with an Ablation! I'm so grateful every day to him for literally giving me back my life! In the grips of A-fib, my active life of race-walking, working-out, bicycling, and hiking, was all but obliterated. And the thought of taking medication for life was repulsive to me, and he totally understood this. As far as I'm concerned, Dr. Wells is the greatest doctor in the world! And each and every one of his staff were awesome too.
