Dr Zilinski in a warm, caring person. I'm seeing a cardiologist to hopefully prepare for a kidney transplant. I don't have any heart issues. She has just reviewed ECHO's that the transport team requires.

I feel that NM Cardiology has vast experience in cases like mine, which I believe better empowers my health care team to gauge my level of risk and to predict the progression of my condition. Dr. Zielinski trusts my ability to assess my own risk, and she treats me like an equal partner in my health care. Furthermore, she's been very accommodating, adapting my treatment to the benefit of my lifestyle as an endurance athlete.
