      I got Raul Santos as my cardiologist and was surprised at his lack of bedside manner. He didn't introduce himself and didn't take the time to explain what he was testing for - he just ordered the tests. On the return visit to review the outcome of the tests - I was left with little or no explanation of the results. All I was left with was - stress test is good and the calcium report was not good. He abruptly walked out of the office and I was left wondering.
