Possibly the least attentive doctor I have ever met. Spent 5 minutes with me on the initial visit, sent me to multiple tests (Calcium, Stress and Echo). Results were auto-forwarded with no detail or description through their MyHealth system and a follow up visit setup 3 weeks later where he spent another 5 minutes dictating (not discussing) the diagnosis and remediation options and blowing off any and all questions so he could get out the door faster. I left feeling like I did something wrong versus being cared for in any way by a healthcare provider. Literally ANY Cardiologist would be preferred over this provider in my opinion.

i like him but his staff is awful. my pharmacy has been waiting for his staff to process correct paperwork with pharmacy and insurance to get a medicine approved since september 3rd. i have left messages at least 5 times in the last 5 weeks and still today 10/14/21 i do not have that medicine. guess heart medicine is no concern to his staff. i had a followup appt on 10/5 and only one medicine was phoned into pharmacy. the ma would rather argue that it was sent. well i guess i now begin my 6 week wait for that one to be worked on. try callingnhis office and your 20 minute hold time starts.

Met him for 5 minutes. In that time he apparently knew he needed to send me off to take 2 tests (stress EKG & calcium score) and prescribe crazy high dose statin. Both tests came back perfect, but haven’t heard from him to follow up, just checked the app for my scores/results. When I called and asked his “assistant” about the 3 palpitations during the stress test, she claimed she would talk to him and call back...still nothing after days. Ridiculously awful level of care and concern

I don't fear for my health with him, but he's completely tackless. Needs to ask--and listen!--rather than second-guess his patient's lifestyle and habits.
