I am dissatisfied that I ended up getting an angiogram, but apparently, there was nothing wrong. I believe if someone had provided more information to me about the ekg results, I would have been in a better position to make an informed decision. I believe that Dr. Peterson is a very competent cardiologist. I just feel that I wasted alot of time [...].

Takes too long (2 mo.) to get an appointment, suggests understaffing for the area. Good thing I WASN'T having heart attacks.

Provider is great! Scheduling system is unsatisfactory. 3 yrs. in a row I have tried to make a timely appointment with Dr. Peterson only to be told that his schedule isn't open yet. I need a letter from him to submit to [...] get my physical which expires in November. I called the morning that I was told his schedule would open only to find that it had opened 2 weeks earlier & he was already full for November. I'll be outside of my sequence now & most likely have to pay out of pocket for this visit. All because of YOUR scheduling practice!!

[...] I use MyChart and everything is conveniently load into the file for me to review. I have contacted the care team with questions several times and have received timely calls or answers. Love that feature rather than using the phone to play phone tag with doctors and staff. I'm a happy Providence client!!

I appreciate "My Chart". I am able to read the results however you need to remember that we are not in the professional field and do not understand most of what you post. For instance you state what the test result is, then you post the range it should be. We don't know if being in between is ok or too low or risky. It would be wonderful to receive a call from a nurse talking to us about the results.

I called to get results of a stress test, 5 days after stress test, he said it was pretty normal. I also had my pacemaker checked, even with my pace maker I had afib., that the upper part was going too fast, but the lower was going slower. My doctor did not tell me if I needed to have anything done to change that, as my understanding it could cause blood clots. So I guess I need to call and ask,; maybe it straightened out when the pacemaker tech. adjusted my pacemaker. Not sure though.
