My recent visit with Dr. Heath centered on two serious heart issues and involved test results and their interpretation. As usual, his report and counsel were understandable, thorough, and helpful, delivered in a manner that is friendly and professional. Dr. Heath has been my cardiologist for more than 35 years, and I can truly say that I have left every meeting with him feeling that I have received his utmost attention and care. Although I have no credentials to make this judgement, I sense that he stays abreast of developments in his field and is thereby equipped to provide his patients with up-to-date treatment. He is tops in my opinion.

Dr. Heath recommended that I have an ultrasound test on my lower legs and proceeded to arrange an appointment for me. At the time of the appointment, I was made to feel comfortable and confident in receiving the test rendered by Roselyn Whitehead, technician. I am pleased to say that the test was completed in a quick and efficient manner. Ned Morris - March 30, 2020.

The staff saw me on time and Dr. Heath put me through my annual check up. This consisted of a treadmill exercise, EKG, and blood pressure check during my treadmill. Dr. Heath was present which made me feel comfortable. We talked during and after my treadmill. I came through with flying colors. Dr. Heath is thorough and professional. See you next year.

I am a new patient. First time to see Dr. Heath. I'm also a retired Health Care Administrator. I was extremely impressed with my visit to your clinic. The front staff was professional, friendly and efficient. My interaction was extremely pleasant. My appt was for 11. At 11 my name was called and I was ushered to the exam room. The technician was very pleasant and would put any patient at ease. Dr. Heath came into the room after a very short wait. Spent more than enough time explaining my conditions and concerns. Was anxious to answer any of my questions. The entire experience was extremely pleasant and impressive. Coming from a background of hospital administration I know how a new patient visit can be a disaster and provide the patient with an attitude and a bad impression of the clinic in return. I was very impressed with this visit. I will be interested to see if subsequent visits mimic the first one.

I now have to accompany my father to his doctor visits, because of his health issues. Dr. Heath was very understanding and open to my opinions, and ideas about his care. Usually when you suggest something to a doctor they shoot you down. He did not.
