I see Dr. Kwasman only once every 6 months or annually and if problems occur for cardiac arrhythmia. He has always been helpful.

I have a very odd work schedule and that makes it difficult to schedule appointments. I gave up on seeing this Dr but they called me back and found a time that works. I appreciated that. Also, I saw the Dr about two years ago and left then feeling like it was a waste of time. This appointment, I felt that something was accomplished

I had a carotid US on the day of the visit. The results weren't available at the time of my visit with the Dr. and he told me they would mail it to me. I still have not received it. I was planning to call the office today to check on the status of that report.

Dr. Kwasmann is the cardiologist that I see in relation to the pacemakers that he implanted in my chest. The first one was done on [...]. The second one was implanted on [...]. I wish that he had taken the care to discuss the results of the checks and results of the monitoring done by the new pacemaker as he did with the first one. Especially since the new pacemaker does checks during the night when I am asleep. I appreciated his efforts to show me the tapes from the first pacemaker. I would appreciate having the same information about the tests from the new one, at least once.

During this visit my normal provider was out sick and I was seen by another doctor in the office. The doctor that I seen started by telling me that he did not believe in my diagnosis and was also negative about some other medical procedures I had in the past. I would not see this doctor ever again.
