Recently had my first visit with Dr. Monroe. He was personable, listened to my concerns about being cleared for an upcoming knee replacement, answered all my questions, did the exam, and went over my current medications. He was thorough and has a staff to be proud of. They were welcoming, informative, and courteous. Will continue to use him as my cardiologist.
