Patient Comments (2)
Anchorage, AK |
Dr. Steven Compton is a member of what I consider to be a dangerous corporate trust in the Alaska Heart Institute. This corporate trust leave patients with no adequate choice with respect to cardiac care except those at the whim of members of that institute and/or its members and staff.
in Anchorage, AK |
Dr. Compton is both thorough and capable. However, if your visits to his office include face time with his assistant/nurse, Rona, prepare for a horrible and frustrating experience. She goes out of her way to obstruct your questions, requests, and other communications, instead choosing an unbelievably arrogant and condescending approach to communication. Her behaviors and attitudes represent the antithesis of the Hippocratic Oath, "First do not harm...". BEWARE. Dr. Compton himself, is great
