Excellent Physician
I had an abnormal ekg during a routine exam and was referred to Dr. Kammerling. Dr. Kammerling gave me his entire attention-focused on my questions and answered honestly. He explained why I received an abnormal report and that he wanted to do additional testing to make sure there was nothing really serious going on. He was careful to be non-alarming, assuring me these additional tests (echo and stress test) were routine and not to be overly concerned. In essence, telling me that most likely my result is simply something we'll need to monitor on an annual basis and not require any intervention. He even drew me a diagram to show me what the ekg found ... so that I could visualize the minor problem. After I had my tests, the Dr. called me with the results before I could even see the report that was posted on the MyChart application. This is a compassionate and abundantly qualified physician. Highly recommend.

Absolutely the most thorough, unrushed, professional office visit I have ever had. Took time to fully explain in lay mans terms my condition. Ensured that I was fully informed about my condition and I left knowing all my questions and concerns were addressed. Would give him 6 Stars if I could. Highly recommend.
