    Happy with MD visit and explanations. Vist was short as are all MD visits now! MA was person that speint most time. Pleasantly, MD did not spend time on computer. Actually interacted and responded without not looking at me. Eye to eye contact. Great!

    It was fine.

    Dr. Orford was thorough, listened to all of my history, and explained carefully what the options were and the way he thought best to proceed. He told me he would be following up in 24-48 hours after consulting with neurologists, and he did just that-he called me today, just over 24 hours after my appointment, to tell me that neurologists were going to discuss my case in their meeting and then decide what to do. because of Dr. Orford's concern and diligence on my behalf, I am EXTREMELEY likely to recommend him to any family or friends who need to see a cardiologist in the future.
