I WOULD NOT SEE THIS DR. AGAIN. HE PERFORMS MORE TESTS THAN ANY ONE I HAVE EVER SEEN. HE IS DOING IT FOR THE MONEY. ITS NOT FOR YOUR HEALTH. HE IS MILKING MEDICARE AND HE KNOWS HOW TO JUSTIFY THE TESTS AND COVER HIS SELF AND HIS STAFF. I WENT TO HIM FOR ABOUT 3 YRS AND GOT TRIED OF THE CONSTANT TESTS AND OFFICE VISIT'S. THE LAST STRAW WAS WHEN HE WANTED TO DO A HEART CATH TEST AND I KNEW I DID NOT NEED THE TEST.

Dr.barely looked me in the eye, it wasn't a warm, trustful feeling. Dr asked the reason I'm here, then he asked to listen to my heart & stomach. At check out I was given a prescription. I asked to see the doctor again for explanations of the prescription. This was my first visit Dr. should have explained the reason for the med and any health risks & he should have asked if I had any ques or concerns. Dr said he wants me to try the med, then he asked me, "you don't trust me?" Return to Dr hmm?

Nice doc and friendly staff but the wait time is horrendous!

I would not recommend this doctor for the following reasons: 1. He spent less than 5 minutes each time he came into my hospital room. 2. He offered little explanation for my low heart rate even after numerous tests. 3. After 10 days in icu I was on high blood pressure medication but still have very low heart rate. 4. Dr. Sokhon attempted to roam his hands in areas not required for a cardiological examination.

He was nice and had good bedside manner. When I had the stress test, his nurse was not friendly. She ripped all of the tape off of me without an apology or care. I just had to bear it. Posters were taped to the wall in the patient room with the tape curling off. I visited with my primary physician about a month later about another condition and he told me that my heart rate was dangerously low. When I showed him the heart medicine I was on, he told me to get off and find another dr.

I LOVE Dr. Sokhon. He's very patient and a good listener. He shows great concern for me and my health issues.
