    Awesome.

    Didn't feel fully listened to. Got test immediately, which was cool, but no time with provider after for questions etc. Basic voice mail w/results;cool. Then provider out of town, then delayed results on 2nd test (wherein I had to follow up twice) - results extremely basic w/o explanation.

    The waiting time between the ECHO and seeing the doctor was too long. However at times this is understandable.
