Office staff

Dr Pernenkil is an excellent cardiologist. His nurse practitioner is adequate, but the office staff that we have had to deal with is evasive ,uninformed ,not helpful and unconcerned with the welfare of the patient . We have had several friends that have changed cardiology groups due to the office staff. I would have given 5 stars for dr but due to poor staff I gave 4

Very dedicated to patients. Have been patient for 16 years and he still remembers specifics of my disease. About the best "bedside manner" of all doctors seen.

RN,BSN

One of the smartest and kindest doctors I have ever encountered professionally and personally. Treats patients as an individual, doesn't rush appointments, accurate diagnosis, has NEVER been too busy to listen to your needs. A true gentleman also. His present nurse, Lisa, could not be more professional and courteous.
