Patient Comments (3)
in Salt Lake City, UT |
This fellow rocks. He knows his heart failures and his staff is most attentive. This man calls me to talk about my issues and takes steps to make sure of the diagnosis.
in Roy, UT |
He has spent considerable time and effort in uncovering a rare heart disease that has been disabling me for nearly 3 years now. I have been to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and they missed it, so did my doctors at the University of Iowa. He is pleasant, professional, and takes the time to answer my questions and explain things thoroughly. He's the polar opposite of the many cardiologists I've seen who were highly difficult and unpleasant to deal with. His supporting team is great as well!
