everything was great except follow up.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

incredibly kind and thorough Dr

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

There's was no need to discuss medications.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

The doctor had been delayed when he arrived. He apologized, which was fine. But then he tried to rush through the appointment to make up the time. This bothered me, because I was quite worried about my heart, and the discussion was emotional for me. At the end, as her started to rush out, I asked him to stop and let me gather my thoughts, so I could ask him any remaining questions, which he did. When I was younger, I wouldn't have had the nerve to do that, and I think a lot of women still don't.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Malgorzata Chojczak (Margaret) was wonderful.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. McDonald is excellent!
