Patient never sees her doctor they only see the nurse practitioner. After Staten poisoning and hospitalization even then a doctor does not see the patient.

Dr Kiernan provided a thorough assessment of my echocardiogram, assuring me that everything is just as it was after my extended septal myectomy 29 months ago. I continue to be highly pleased with the care that I have received from him over the last 10 years since he first diagnosed me with a narrowing of the outflow tract in my upper left ventricle.
