Excellent Physician

I've been a patient of Dr Orchard for about 15 years. He takes his time with his patients and explains what he finds and recommends in terms that non-medically trained individuals can understand. He really cares about his patients. Once of the best physicians I've seen in my lifetime.

Knowledgeable and Decisive

Dr. Orchard is a sophisticated but practical physician that quickly discerns the patient's familiarity with terminology and simplifies explanations accordingly. He is easy to understand. He does not pretend infallibility and speaks honestly about medical uncertainties to the patient. He is very knowledgeable about cardiology and most all associated body system dynamics. He is decisive and responsive to patient needs. Confident but not arrogant at all.
