The wait to get in was long but the staff was kind and the Dr was not in a hurry which I appreciated. I had an EKG, stress test, and ECG all in the office on the same day. I havenever had such great medical treatment at a cardiologist's office.

Dr. Shields spent all of the time with me that I would have expected. She let me explain my story, which was rather long; and made me completely comfortable and showed concern. She also referred me to a pulmonologist as wellbased upon my situation out of an abundance of caution. Complete testing is ordered and I will follow up with her to review in a month. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Sanchez-Ross did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable, explaining everything she discussed with me, running all necessary tests, and doing it all very efficiently. It was obvious she cares about the overall health and care ofher patients. She is certainly courteous of her patients' time as well, and tries to arrange appointments that are convenient for them. I would definitely recommend her!

It was good! The nurse did get me mixed up with another patient and scared the crud out of me telling me I was going to need an IV and this that and the other but turns out/thank goodness that itwasnt me! It was an honest mistake but kind of scary! Also, when I was in the middle of my stress test a nurse came in that had nothing to do with me and began prepping for the next patient which I thought was strange. All in all thought it was a good visit and I am not picky so although there were a few things I would recommend this place!
