Well Prepared for Office Visits
Dr. Champion took the time to review my charts and test results from a recent hospitalization and seemed well prepared for my visit. He was however, rather dismissive of my concerns and literally rolled his eyes at me when he had no diagnosis or explanation for what had happened and I gave him the thoughts of the attending surgeon. Left feeling like I need to find a different doctor.

Dr. Champion was very knowledgeable and thorough with his interaction with me. Someone told me that I should get a certain test; but before I could ask him about it, he suggested performing it. He was also very open to taking questions from me.

Doctor Champion make the difference with his communication skills. He listen to you and give you a very good information about the issues, so you don’t have to do questions. That tell you he is very serious and is not in appointment just to be present like most of the doctors and prescribe some medications. He explains extensively everything. That for me make the difference. Very excited to find this doctor, one of the bests.

Staff are friendly, efficient, and I have never had to wait long to be seen. Dr. Champion is the best! He is kind, thorough, and considerate. When I had my first heart test, he made sure I had the results before I left town for a holiday trip so I wouldn’t worry. He always encourages me to take care of myself and doesn’t judge when I don’t…just encourages me more ??

The practice is very large. Several doctors covering many hospitals. They all have favorites. Dr. Champion is a new-age doctor who doesn’t waste time or money. He is very aware of the current regimens necessary to thwart heart attacks or failure. He is up to date on medications. He communicates kindly but efficiently. His staff seems quite competent and awake. I am pleased.
