November 2017
I was anxious as I had been with previous cardiologist for 20+ years - having recently moved from Albany, NY. Dr. Huang was well informed about my condition - attentive and present in the room. I felt respected and listened to. I thank him for his explanations and review - reassurances and ongoing care plan. I feel safe and well cared for.
November 2017
Listening & discussing my concerns was not adequate. Our communication together was poor. I felt he limited his discussion and information of my problem. I am intelligent & educated & he seemed to simplify his discussions & explanations unnecessarily. He also said I declined or refused his medication changes. This was not true. #7. Too simplified.
