His concern for what was going on with my heart after first exam. He then ordered an echo-cardiogram, blood work, and another appointment to check things out and go over the situation which he did within three days. After the second exam, I was very comfortable with the fact that my heart was thoroughly checked out for any possible problems.

Dr. Counihan always listens carefully to what I have to say. He seems interested in giving me the best possible care that he can and wants to make sure that I stay in good health. He seems to look out for me which I really appreciate.
