It was late Friday when I saw her, and she was having to push to get everything done she wanted to be sure I would be ok' until we got more answers. In 2 hours, she and her team had my EKG done, labs she needed, to the hospital for ultra sound needed looking for clots, had me on a blood thinner and an appointment set up w cardio on Monday! In 2 hours! Then, she called me that evening to be sure I had the 1st dose of blood thinner going and to check on me! Amazing!

Dr. Achilefu's ability to correctly diagnose what turned out to be a strained/pulled (?) upper shoulder/back muscle was extremely critical in quickly resolving the issue. The complete physical exam of the muscle/skeletal (?) area of concern was quick but thorough. She was able to distinguish exactly what the source of the pain was to appropriately treat it w/out further medical intervention. So important so I could get relief and continue on with enjoying my day(s). Accurate diagnoses & appropriate treatment protocols are key.
