Dr. Murrad could not have been any better. I went in skeptical about the care I would receive and in a very short time was completely at ease and reasured about the care I would receive. I am a nurse and still involved in the health care system.

After returning home, I discovered that cardiac rehab could not take me in the next 2 days as was thought (they were closed for the holidays). I emailed the provider via the Providence website, and he responded early the next morning with clear instructions for my recovery until I could get into cardiac rehab. This was extremely helpful and appreciated.
