We are trying to fix what I deem, an urgent issue because it's very distressing over email and have been since the day after my appointment. It's getting very old.

The person who put on my at home monitor was the only one not very friendly; did her job, but too quick and pointed, like it was a bother.

I'm impressed with everyone who assisted me or talked with me during both my initial appointment with Dr. Abudiab and the stress test the following day. This includes Dr. Abudiab's receptionist who helped me with insurance coverage and showed concern for me and the assistant who took routine medical history and scrips/OTC's. All contacts contributed to the low stress relaxing comforting atmosphere.

I found that everyone I was in contact with during this visit was very professional and helpful.

over all a good experience

Great experience. He was very knowledgeable, covering all the bases so we know just what I'm dealing with [...]

Dr. Abudiab answered questions that another dr. didn't take the time to.

I think Doctor Abudiab needs to be more patient friendly. He had a cold, so, maybe he was not feeling good that day. That's ok!

Routine heart checkup with Dr. from Spokane Cardiology

This was the first time I saw this provider as they have made change in the organization & the change to the North office. It will work just fine.

People were very attentive and caring

Dr. Abudiab is a very kind, concerning soul. I really like him.

I had to have bloodwork and xrays they set up everything and gave me direction where to go.

I was very pleased and relieved that this doctor saw me right away!

excellent experience with dr. and staff [...] No question there at all

Everything was great with the exception of the scheduling. Had to call back twice to schedule a June appointment.

First visit to this provider. Difficult to know if I could trust Dr. Abudiab with my care. First impressions were favorable.

Explained things well so I could understand even drawings.

Dr. Abudieb was very personable, knew exactly what was wrong, explained things to me and put me at ease. I think he is great and am so happy that I was referred to him!

I was referred to him from my primary doctor. Everything went very well for a first time visit.

do not understand waiting months to see a specialist

Very professional & competent.

generally happy with PCP. REFERRALS DON'T always get responded to. Spokane Cardiology was prompt and I obtained appointment in reasonable time frame for the concerns. as of this time I have not heard results of testing done.
