[...] I READ on the "After Visit Summary," that the visit was about a-fib & A/V block. Neither was mentioned. After several minutes typing, he said I was "fine." I asked about the results of the echocardiogram: "Your valves look fine." If I had known he was a cardiac electrophysiologist I wouldn't have asked general cardiac questions. Cursory general answers. Discouraging. At the end, he leaned close & looked at me & explained that I had upcoming appointments. Was I deaf or illiterate? Maybe he did this to compensate for prior remoteness. Very thorough with stethoscope. Will not go to him again.

Dr. Yerky is a Cardiologist who follows me with an annual visit. 3 months before this annual review I experienced problems out of state and saw several doctors and had many many tests in Las Vegas where we lived for 6 months. My husband is fully cognizant of all my health experiences and answered for me correctly. [...] on this visit for first time, the doctor arranged for a mandarin speaking translator to conference call with us and this helped me immensely to ask and answer. Thank you
