I had a concern of high blood pressure; she asked only 1 question "do you eat a lot of bacon, processed soups, canned beans?" No - I do not. I've always had normal BP readings. Her fix to this was to double my Atenolol dose.

After my recent appointment my dr/nurse forgot to order my bp med. I ran out because I thought it was coming from my mail order pharmacy and never did. I ended up getting a refill that thankfully I had remaining from my local pharmacy after being off my med for a few days.

She tried me on two very expensive and powerful PAH meds that didn't work out; I wish I had stayed with the meds the previous cardiologist prescribed because the months I suffered the side effects of the new drugs were very bad months. Also, she messed with my [...] prescription. First she told me to quit it, then she reinstated it but only one a day; now I'm back to two a day just like what I took before for 6 years. During all those months my heart was beating too fast.

Very pleased with my new cardiologist.

I felt she dismissed my health concern as anxiety without listening to why I was concerned. I felt like a burden on her time and just wanted to leave as quickly as possible. If something is wrong, I'll never know from this provider. I would rather not do tests that felt like she was was just humoring me. I didn't ask to see her, I was sent there by my regular provider. I did what I was told by professionals and was made to feel like a hypochondriac for it. No thank you.

Dr. Le is attentive, knowledgeable, asks questions and listens to my responses and is very kind & caring. She has my complete trust.

My first time visit with Doctor Le. The visit was good

This dr. is pro = concerned informative, honest. explains things in full.

I feel like I am receiving care from people who are professionally dedicated and accomplished. They know what they are doing. I can be confident that I receive sound counsel and care.

She listens and reacts to all concerns I had. Already recommended my daughter to her.

extremely excellent!!!

After being passed around from provider to provider at [...] for 3 yrs and getting absolutely nowhere but in debt, imdo happy to have switched to Providence. Dr. Le really seems to know what shes doing and is very thorough. Cheers to her in hopes that she can find the answers to my abnormal medical problem whereas the other 9 drs I've seen over the past 6 yrs have failed. Thank you Dr. Le and thank you Providence for setting the bar.

I am always happy

Dr. Le was very helpful and gave me good information that I could use when I left.

I love providence health care
