What People Say About Dr. Vera Rigolin, MD
Reply
Dr Rigolin is a thorough-going professional who immediately got her head around my medical history and recommended the screening I needed. She also did a great job of reading a bunch of tests and correctly identifying the kind of bicuspid valve I had, saving me a lot of extra screening that might have happened if we'd just gone with the PCP's initial assessment. My only complaint is not about her but the department. The wait time was horrible (over an hour).
