What People Say About Dr. Vincent Patrone, MD
Reply
He is not very professional when dealing with younger patients. I have been to the cardiologist since I was 21 and when I went to see him, at 22 years old, he treated me as if I was a child who didn't understand anything. He acted like I had no right to decisions about my own body.

I have been a patient with Piedmont Cardilogy since 2012. During the course of my appointments, I have had the opportunity to meet almost every physician within the practice. I believe it is important that doctors demonstte a caring and compassionate attitude. I also believe that treating others with respect and attentiveness is essential, especially physicians. With that being said, I wiould not recommend family or friends. My latest visit was upsetting to say the least!
