Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Padilla ""My patients are all different, and I enjoy getting to know them and their interests,"states Dr. Padilla. "Knowing my patients helps me to provide treatment options that they would choose – it's the patient's choice – my job is to give them all the information.I realize that I can't force patients to do anything – I can only encourage and recommend.I also rely heavily on primary care physicians' input and information about their patients,as they usually have had a longer term relationship with a patient. I view primary care physicians as part of the cardiac team.""
