Specialties

Dr. Braden W Batkoff has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

UNHAPPY

The first thing he said to me on entering his office is that we needed to do surgery. No discussion, no empathy and very little feeling behind his diagnosis. After getting a second and third opinion I discovered that my symptom were indicative of acid re-flux. He scheduled me for a test that I did not approve and when I sent him an email inquiring he did not even respond. Now thousands of dollars later I find out that there has been no change in my condition over the last five years. Not only did I not need the test, but it was determined my condition was unchanged. This is now the second time in 3 years that I have been told by these doctors that I need open heart surgery when my condition had not gotten any worse. Do you know how scary it is to hear that you need open heart surgery and I have had to hear it twice. If I hadn't received a second opinion my life would be completely different now!
