      Beware when you go to Dr Axline. He is VERY expensive My appointment lasted 15 minutes. All he did was listen to my heart and I was charged $410.00. When I called about the bill they would not give me a break down of the bill.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      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. Axline's Care Philosophy

      My main responsibility is to take care of patients. This begins in my office visits with a clear focus on listening and talking to the patient before then formulating a strategy for diagnosis and treatment. This might range anywhere from kind reassurance to sophisticated diagnostic testing and procedures. All care is individualized, and I strive to be compassionate and thorough. My special interests and expertise also lie in a variety of cardiac imaging modalities which I use for diagnosis, followup and treatment of a wide range of cardiac diseases. This includes diagnostic cardiac catheterization, nuclear cardiology, echocardiography and cardiac CT and CT coronary angiography. I have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation and coronary artery disease. Difficult-to-control hypertension and elevated cholesterol are common clinical challenges that I face daily. Primary prevention has also become an important part of my practice with an emphasis on blood pressure, cholesterol and life style changes including smoking cessation and better exercise habits.
