excellent practice

March 29, 2017

This was the third date for which I was scheduled to see this provider: his schedule caused him to cancel the first two. He is a cardiologist and I believe real emergencies necessitate flexibility in his schedule. My appointment(s) were for routine follow-up and monitoring and the cancelations caused no inconvenience. They were not a cause of discomfort or concern. I could have seen one of his colleagues, but I greatly prefer seeing him. I have developed great trust in him.
