Had a procedure on [...]. Someone from the office is supposed to call with follow up procedure but 1 week later I have not received a call. Waited in the exam room for 1 hour and 10 minutes before Dr came in. No one let me know that he was delayed.

Dr. Kwasman is always very through,however, when he asked if I had any questions, I wasn't prepared and didn't ask about the condition of my heart, even though I brought my daughter with me. Big mistake. We'll do better next time.

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.

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.
