Very good visit.
Patient | December 19, 2016

The only issue I have is that I scheduled a relative with a similar issue with this doctor only a week after my appointment, and when that relative showed up the doctor had ZERO recollection of me or my appointment. I know the docs see a lot of patients, but during my appointment when I mentioned that my relative needed to see a cardiologist because of a recent diagnosis, the doctor eagerly and immediately said I should make an appointment for him. At any rate, I think this doctor is very good and would recommend him.
