Open Full Survey+
Dr Sappington was the admitting cardiologist when I was admitted to the hospital. A PA saw me to do the admission history & physical. I sawDr. Sappington for less than 10 seconds waiting to have a nuclear stress test. The following day Dr. Sappington was in attendance for the exercise portion and that was the last time I saw him. I was then discharged without any words or instructions from the doctor.
