[...] When he asked me why I was there, I barely had time to reply before he told me that my ekg was the same as the last time I was there in 2009 and nothing had changed. There was nothing he could do to help my [...] and had told me that before. [...] I apologized for taking up his time and was told that I wasn't, but he went on to say that he was surprised my doctor would send me a second time [...] I left more worried than when I arrived. I'm sure you have a fine organization, but will go elsewhere for professional cardio care.

Dr. Whisenant is the best cardiologist I have had. He makes sure I have all the information I need. He also follows up to make sure I am comfortable with any changes to my meds. Excellent staff as well. I have recommended him and Providence Health to several family members and will continue to do so.

I came to see Dr. Whinesant for a second opinion and was very impressed with him. He said he was going to contact my regular cardiologist and recommend different medication. He also said I should have a ekg around December. I Thanked him for his insight. The next day, I decided That I would like him to be my regular cardiologist and I called his office and talked to [...], his receptionist, and relayed the information. I also asked her if he could call [...] with my new prescription. She said she would contact his nurse. I never heard anything. I waited about 9 days. Then I called [...] and told her I never heard from the nurse and my prescription was never filled. It is now [...] and still no contact. The Doctor was great but follow up on me being his regular patient and having my prescription filled has gone by the wayside. [...] said the nurse would call me and nothing has happened!

My first appointment was supposed to have an echocardiogram scheduled, but someone forgot to schedule it. I had to make another trip to the office to get it done. I also had not had a EKG done in a year, and thought it might be a good idea to have one done. Dr Whisenant didn't feel it was necessary.
