Note that this is a yearly exam with a doctor that I have seen for many many years. I have tremendous trust in his judgement concerning my heart condition and he is more than willing to listen and provide any information I may ask for.

Dr. Counihan was the kindest, most informative doctor I have ever seen. Also, his nurse/assistant made me feel very calm and treated me with respect.
