I have had very good results from seeing her, she doesn't rush you through, she takes the time to ask and answer any questions you may have. The staff is very friendly and attentive and they treat you as a person, not just another patient to get in and out. She has an app for your phone that lets her track your progress and reminds you to take your medications, which i find very helpful for me and for her. My heart function has improved under her care. I have had other cardiologists that seem to just rush you in and out like they had no interest in you as a person.
