Last year my mom was hospitalized three times for fluid retention. Throughout the entire process I got the feeling that he was going through the motions and that he and his staff did not care. He kept bringing up her age. Luckily in one of her stays in the hospital we ran into a doctor who recommended adding another dieuretic and she has been stable ever since. My mom was transferred to another cardiologist without consulting her or her family. The transfer was for the best but handled poorly.

Not happy about his follow up

My father is an overall healthy and active 83 year old. When we learned of his abdominal aortic aneurysm, we feared the worst. Dr Sola and his amazing team did a SUPURB job (not just in the operating room but also in the office!). Bed side manner-Exceptional. Incisions were SO SMALL there was little risk of post op bleeding. I am a healthcare professional and I pay attention to detail. I can't speak well enough for him. Just exceptional! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
