This doctor is the reason my daughter spent the night in the hospital after emergency surgery . The cardiac cath he performed left her with a radial artery clot. During her night stay the poor nurse had extremely hard time getting him for medication orders . He did not see her until 10 at night finally due to continually calling. I would not recommend this doctor for anyone

If you hate yourself and want to die, he is the doctor for you. Prescribes medicines that interact badly. Doesn't check on patients timely. Doesn't respond to repepeated emergency calls to patients when on call.
Dr. Payment is a wonderful, and knowledgeable doctor. He has a great bedside manner. He makes his patient feel like family. He has a heart of gold, and his patients always comes first. His staff is always concern, and always helpful. Dr. Payment, and his staff is way beyond a 5 star. Thank you for all Dr. Payment.

I have been seeing Dr. Payment since May 2016, after having two bad experiences with two previous cardiologists for almost two years; while in their "care" I had to visit the ER at least once every two month with chest pain and Afib. Since I have been seeing Dr. Payment, who prescribed medication appropriate for my condition, I have not experienced chest pain nor did I have to go to the ER with Afib. Dr. Payment gave me back the life I had before I was seeing the two previous physicians.

Dr Payment and his PA Ann are the most caring Doctors that you will ever meet, and you will never meet a more caring and kind staff than Dr Payment's. I wish I had known about Dr Payment 3 years ago. If you are in need of a great Heart Doctor you will not be unhappy with Dr Payment and his staff. Robin W.

Absolutely love Dr.Payment! He is very kind, takes his time with you, and explains everything thoroughly. Great bedside manner, and has good humor where ever there is room for such, in delicate matters such as your heart. Very informative, and a great plumber as he refers himself to. Staff is also fantastic. Lady who does my EKG's, I call her EK, her initials for her name by chance, is a sweetheart! But really everyone is great there. You won't be sorry you chose this office.
