Dr. Giattina was very patient today. She explains things very clearly and simply, and has lots of experience. She errs on the side of being a bit too specialized and efficient sometimes (could express more curiosity to investigate possible broader underlying causes of heart problems and their possible connections with other body systems), but is reassuring and on balance an excellent physician, I am grateful to have her support.
She is an excellent doctor
Excellent, thoughtful medical care.

The Best
Ms Giattina is an excellent and caring cardiologist

My husband and I had back to back video appointments with Dr. Giattina. I just finished filling out his survey because he was not up to doing it. As I said in his survey, Dr. Giattina is a great doctor and we both are very fortunate to have her as our cardiologist.
I am extremely grateful For Dr. Giattina because of her high level expertise. Her intelligence shines forth and touches me deeply. This quality of hers helps me enormously by helping me think better. I also highly value her ability to connect on a personal level. She listens extremely well which also has a positive effect. I believe if you did a study you would find a visit with her creates improved health impacts. I am feeling better today after visit and the orthostatic issues resolved since yesterday's appointment. Thank you Stanford for offering extraordinary care.
She is always very professional and to the point. She is definitely not the kind of doctor who tells you what you want to hear. She tells you what you need to do and the reasons behind it. That in it self is the reason I will continue to have her as my doctor and continue to recommend friends to her.
