Very academic presentation. He had read some of my past history prior to entering the exam room, making me feel he had prepared for the appointment. He was recommended by my cardiologist as a good fit for my specific needs. He ordered procedures relevant to my history and my concerns for a treatment plan. He presented several options for treatment and explained the reasons. He answered a number of questions I had prepared. Moving forward I am hopeful his expertise will provid me with an improved quality of life!

Reputation of NMH. Past history of my medical care thru NMH physicians. Proximity and convenience of off site appointments. Referral from my cardiologist as a reputable source to pursue treatment options for an existing condition. Confidence I will receive the most up-to-date competent assessment in a speciality area. Further, that an individualized treatment plan will be based on the medical evaluation pending test results.
