I felt the provider was nice and respectful. This was my first time visiting a cardiologist and I was really scared and he made me feel like the reason I was referred was unimportant and also making me feel like the symptoms that led me there were unimportant. I'm sure he's very smart and know what he's doing but the mannerism didn't make me feel important or reassured by his reasoning
