My husband was with me for the appointment. He had a lot of questions and he told Dr. Kwasman he answered his questions before my husband had a chance to ask them. He was very impressed.

Dr. Kwasman is a wonderful arrhythmia cardiologist---very knowledgeable, gracious and explains everything until I can understand it. Sometimes he is unavailable, but a nurse or an oncall physician helps out.

I felt like the provider did not listen to or respect what I had to say. His approach made me feel foolish about sharing my concerns about my health with him.

I feel like Dr. Kwasman is a partner in caring for my cardio needs. I'd be delighted to find a GP who communicated (both listening and explaining) as well as he does. He makes what could be a hassle or a stressful experience a delight.

Time estimates are VERY loose. Whether I have to wait 5 minutes or 30 minutes to see Dr Kwasman is totally irrelevant. I know that when I get to see him I'll have is undivided attention as long as necessary. I believe other patients receive the same attention and focus. Consequently, if he needs more time with someone ahead of me I consider it to be fair. I hope those coming after me are as charitable when he needs extra time with me.
