Dr. Hollingsworth listened to me, and was determined to find out what was causing my heart issues. I think very highly of both her and her nurse, Layla!

Dr. Hollingsworth is the only cardiologist in a long list over the years, to take my chest pain seriously enough to thoroughly test for and diagnose my leaking tricuspid valve.

She was very unprofessional the last time I saw her. I asked her about getting cardiac clearance from her for an elective procedure and she got down right rude, made several degrading remarks, not only about the procedure but the other doctor as well. Went so far as to tell me I'd die on the table if I had the procedure done.

I was in the emergency room on a Saturday the nurses there detected an arrhythmia and ordered me to see the cardiologist in the next few days. I went that next Monday and attempted to make an appointment but not only did they refuse to move up the appointment that was five months out they refused to have me see someone else there as well. No concern whatsoever.
