Professional Statement
My practice philosophy has not changed during my many years practicing Medicine. First and foremost, I treat everyone as if they were a close friend or a family member. My philosophy is to treat each patient as an individual who has specific needs and concerns. I encourage my patients to become accountable for their own health and wellness. I partner with my patients in helping them to achieve a healthier lifestyle and work together towards a shared goal of reducing their risk of cardiovascular disease.

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey.Responses are measured on a 10 - point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5 - point scale in order to display results in a 5 - star rating.Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

The doctor and his staff were terrific



This doctor's interest more in his family life than the patient's keeps me from recommending this doctor and I will probably reschedule my next appointment with another doctor.


I have had provider new for 3 visits, this last one, by FAR was the best, very VERY GOOD. [...]

New Rx given (diuretic) way too strong - Had to call in for help. Still "climbing the ladder" of good health - struggling.

Phys didn't have my records from previous cardiologist. He assisted me with a medical question not specific to cardiology. He ordered an echocardiogram in mid-December. I'm generally impressed with my experience with Providence (since approx July of last year).

I was not told at the appointment time that I will have an ultra-sound follow up test.
