I’m a young guy, but I have a bad heart. I met Dr. Barn and right away they put a temporary pump in my heart to help me out. Then they talked to me about getting an LVAD. I had no choice. I couldn’t walk and my breathing was getting harder. I’ve been to hell and back, but now everyone is really, really happy with my progress. I can’t wait till the weather gets nicer and my girlfriend and I can go hiking again, and I can finally go back to fishing. I am so thankful to Deborah for giving me a second chance.

Dr. Frank is an excellent doctor. She explains and answers all my questions in a way that I understand. She's in no hurry to finish with my appointment. She's friendly and very professional and I can feel that she cares about my health. Thank you very much.

Kind, attentive, thorough. Dr. Altimore gives you clear answers, and not only focuses on your cardiac health, but if he sees or suspects another issue, will point you to the correct health provider to look into it.

My husband Walt has seen Dr. Costic a couple of times. He is a cool doctor, explains everything to a T, and in a language we can understand. The most important thing, he LISTENS to his patients and answers all of our questions. To me, he is the best!

I always feel like I'm doing better when I see him. He has great bedside manner and doesn't just order tests when you don't need them. Thank you Dr. Ice and Deborah for having such a great doctor on staff. Thanks again.

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.
