Dr. Ginkel showed genuine concern for my heart issues. He was the first medical person to advise of my heart's condition (the original medical facility which took the various tests, did not explain much at all; except told me to ask my heart doctor (app't was 3 weeks away).

No test to diagnose stage of disease, just a ECG and my prognosis given by Dr. Ginkel is Death. Since January 2020 I been scheduled for June 30,2020. And did ai mention he is billing my PPO insurance for a level 4, second highest level of care. When I asked for an MRI he refused by saying I would only run up a bill like he was paying for it my insurance covers me 100% In my opinion if you are under 65 years old and have ever self medicated avoid the high cost of a prognosis of death because I was told my heart was healthy but yet another cardiologist diagnosed me with Aortic valve disease. Delaying my treatment and shaming me discouraging me from seeking medical care BECAUSE I CAN AFFORD IT!!!
