Patient Comments (2)
Simi Valley, CA |
This doctor did not have very good bedside manners. He always seemed to be in a hurry to get rid of me. He was not a very good listener and made me feel stupid when I talked about my symptoms. I know when something isn't right with my body. He was not very helpful and was not comforting at all. I will never go back to him.
Medford, OR |
Dr. Lightheart did not want to answer questions about side effects from my medication or my newly diagnosed condition and how it would impact my activity level. He actually called my primary care doctor to complain about my questions. When I switched to another cardiologist at another facility, he encouraged questions and asked me to write them down before I came in for the appointment. He changed the medicine that was causing problems for me and I have been doing very well since.
