Dr Earnhardt provided me with the best care of any physician I have seen in my 76 year history! He explains things remarkably well and is understanding and skilled. His manner is highly respectful and he deserves ten stars,not just five. My condition is now stable under his care. You would be lucky to have him as your cardiologist for sure. As another professional in the helping field I recognize an outstanding provider.

Unfortunately, I didn't get 2 see Dr. bc I was 8 mins late after their lunchtime re-opening- according 2 my phone, but apparently 10 mins late according 2 office clock... so receptionist refused 2 come 2 window. Instead, she & another gal stood @ back of office (w/another one sitting on corner of a desk) & deliberately ignored me. Husband went 2 adjoining office & THAT receptionist went 2 see what the problem was- only then did gal open the window. VERY unprofessional- I refused 2 reschedule.
