We Speak Fluent Patient

Based on thousands of testimonials and patient surveys, it is clear that one of the things our patients appreciate the most is our ability to communicate with them about complex topics during what is often a very emotional time. The number of people who have commented on their physician’s listening skills, ability to simplify complicated diagnoses, and a commitment to caring for the whole person is a testament to the quality of our team.

Dr. Bullock-Palmer is an outstanding cardiologist. She is the only reason I travel 70 minutes to Deborah Heart and Lung Center.

4.8 Star Rating

Rated 4.8/5 Stars on Patient Surveys

We’ve partnered with RepuGen, a leading independent patient satisfaction company to collect and calculate our survey data. They survey all patients who are seen in our outpatient clinic within 24 hours of their visit. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide comments about the care they received, which we use to improve and enhance our care.

Patients are asked to rate their experience on a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 being poor and 10 being excellent. Our provider average is 9.6/10, which we have extrapolated to 4.8/5 on a typical 5-star rating system.

Dr. Zingrone is consistently professional, yet friendly, knowledgeable, thorough and very caring. She never hurries through an appointment, but shows true concern for my well being. I feel privileged and am thankful that she is my cardiologist.

Dr. Costic is very knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. He spent a lot of time with us explaining what was going on and helping us make a decision on what to do. We have a lot of confidence in his ability as a surgeon.

They did a complete work up on me. When I left after that appointment, I just sat in my car crying. It was the first time people were taking me seriously and listening to me.
