Heart Felt Disappointment!

It is scary dealing with this office. Calls are never returned. This is not just a cold we are talking about---it could be a potential cardiac arrest. The doctor is knowledgeable but really pays little attention to the PERSON. All I experienced was his looking at his computer and his notes. I need to look elsewhere-pronto!
