I had my first new patient visit in 9/2017 with Dr. Terreson who was recommended by a co worker. The entire experience was exceptional. In June while on vacation I was hospitalized with chest pains in another state. I brought 30 pages of hospital records to my appointment. Not only did his staff scan them to my file, but Dr. Terreson read them for my appointment. His medical advice was detailed and specific. I can recommend this doctor and his office without exception.

Dr. David Terreson is great doctor, he knows his stuff. He is also friendly and takes the time to help you understand his diagnosis. Seeing Dr. Terreson has become a family affair. He cared for my mother and then when my son had an infection he treated him and because of the quality care he gave them I chose to also have him as my cardiologist. Also, his staff is great, friendly, helpful and professional.

Very positive experience. Every person I dealt with was both personable and professional. Dr Terreson comes across like an familiar friend and does very well at listening, analyzing test results, and explaining his reasoning for his conclusions and recommendations.

I've had two open heart bypass surgeries in the last 10 years. The first one was a difficult recovery, the last one was smooth sailing. The difference to me is Dr. Terreson. He was the cardiologist for the second round and remains my cardiologist. He and his Nurse Practioner Ms Darby made all the difference.

Have been a patient about ten years and love the outstanding and professional service I receive. Would not hesitate recommend anyone looking for a cardiologist.
