Doctor Pachella and his team were excellent. My circumstances involved a health check up from my PCP, a rapid stress test, followed by a nuclear stress test, followed by a cardiac catheterization procedure and a stent - literally one day after the other. I appreciate the Doctor's office and staff very much for fitting me in. I did feel like I was on the operating table before I really understood what was going on. But I sensed from the doctor's point of view - they wanted to avert anything bad from happening given the unknowns. So the e "good rating" is really reflective of my feelings vs. an objective view of the service. The overall service was always very good!
