TOP important and interesting reviews from patients

My first visit was awesome. Good people was able to talk to the doctors openly and they may me comfortable. Thought I had to do a lot of paperwork, but it was already done fantastic good staff.

I've been a patient at Affiliated Cardiology since 2007. I've ALWAYS had the utmost confidence that I've gotten the best care. There examinations are very thorough, you know they really care about your heart health and you as a person. I began as a patient setting Dr Akkad but began seeing Dr Katherine Minor in 2012 she is a wonderful doctor and shows genuine concern for you as a person not just a patient. She asked me how my family was doing and really listened.

My prior cardiologist was not the nicest and told me she didn’t have time to look at my chart because she’s busy and has a lot of patients to see. I felt disheartened and began looking for a new provider and found affiliated cardiologists. I was seen by PA Katie Minor. She is kind and professional. She made me feel comfortable and explained everything so well to me. Nothing was rushed and I liked that she asked if I had any questions I’d like to ask her. I also have a vascular compression disorder and she gave me the name of the doctor I should see for this condition. It’s nice to know that I am in good hands.

Love Dr. Akkads office. I am always treated with respect and dignity. I feel like they listen to me and they always talk me using plain language so I understand everything and feel supported.

I don’t remember the crisis I went through at all. But what I do remember is the office visit with the Dr and PA both of which impressed me. That is hard to do as I have been a practicing Cath lab nurse since 1988. I have interacted with many providers. Dr Akkad and his PA Katherine are among the best. Sincerely, Thank you for life R.

Katie Minor is the best PA in any health care practice. She is extremely caring and knowledgeable. She never rushes you through an appointment and always makes sure all your questions are answered before you leave.
