Dr Black is awesome! I enjoy how well he explains things to me and makes sure I know how to reach out for help, other than the My Chart, since two out of three times I never received a response from my message through it to Cardiology

Dr Black, showed concern for my meds not doing as he had hoped. He changed my RX and ask me to journal my pulse rate. he actually gave me a Rx as I was having eye allergy's . he also provided me his concerns for my Anxiety. he gave me his # and nurses' # for any kind of followup I needed. I appreciate his care. Hopefully can feel better soon.
