August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt he answered questions but didn't elaborate much. I was told over th phone when I was instructed that the dr. would look @ the DVD of my echocardiogram complete that I brought in ahead of time and also by the physicians assistant. I was told by the dr. when he came in he'd look at it later I had thought he'd look at it with me and discuss what he was seeing. As far as I know the problem could have been there but hidden & now just showing up. I was grateful though that he wasn't concerned & didn't feel I needed additional tests at this time.

August 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Very pleasant.
