It usually takes a while to see the doctor after checking in, but I've come to expect that and budget my time accordingly. I know he's busy.

I have managed medical offices for over 30 years. [...] Therefore, I know a lot about medical conditions. Dr Navare would not answer my questions, but rather eluded to a genetic cause for my symptoms. He knew I have an extensive background in the medical field. I do understand a MD may not want to discuss the findings of a basic ECG until other testing is done, but I am the type of patient who wants to know what we're looking for and what would be the cause. Dr. Navare is polite and respectful so I will give him another try when going over my test results in two weeks.

I recently had a hospital stay for a heart episode, and this was a 3 week follow up appointment. I was there to get an EKG & Echocardiogram. I was seen in about 15 minutes and sent to the examination room. I was given an EKG fairly quickly and then sat and waited more than 60 minutes for Dr. Navare to come explain the results. He told me everything was "normal" and that I need to make a separate appointment for an echocardiogram at the same office. I asked how long this procedure takes and Dr. Navare told me around 30 minutes. I was confused why I had to reschedule and come back for another test when this is why I came in the first place, but I wasn't given a clear answer. I had to take the whole afternoon off work, anticipating I would be given both tests like they told me when I booked my appointment, and doing this again seems unnecessary. Booking two separate appointments seems wasteful to my time and the Dr.'s for something that could easily been 1 appointment. [...] By the end of my appointment, I had waited about 90 minutes to get one EKG that took less than 60 seconds. [...] I will be canceling my appointment for the Echo, and following up with a different cardiologist.
