Patient Comments (4)
in Gold Canyon Az |
Horrible experience at a Gold a Canyon office. Receptionist was rude. Young woman who took me back to a room to check my blood pressure seemed very depressed. Prepping me for a vein ablation, both doors left open for me to hear what was happening in next room and anybody walking down the hall to view me. And it just got worse. Dr. Never even acknowledged me when she came in to do procedure. Never going back. Cindy and Cho the only people who even seemed to remotely care.. Just awful.

Dr. Yilma is extremely knowledgeable. Another cardiology health professional told me she has the best memory of anyone she has ever met. I have seen her for many years and trust all her advice implicitly. She is also exceptionally caring.

I love Dr Yilma but her staff is terrible. No one answers the phone. All you EVER get is voice mails that are never returned. The office ran so much better when Dottie was there. We miss her!
in Gilbert, AZ |
She found a 90% blocked carotioid artery and scheduled best surgeon in AZ to make the repair. She follows my Heath closley and leaves nothing to chance. Dr Yilma saved me from a certain stroke.
