one year follow up. Routine.

The Dr didn't listen to me or look over any of my history. He then made a very rude comment and I feel judgement telling me not to smoke marijuana and I said I didn't. he paused and didn't look very kindly at me then said sure but don't ever do it, it's bad for you and won't help your problems. Ive never smoke marijuana and I don't plan on it. Being a young woman in my twenties, I felt this was a very rude judgment and assumption.

He did all he couldn't to make me feel special.

I don't feel like he was listening to me. I work in the medical field so I know a little about what I'm doing and what he was talking about. he kept telling me "this will go away it's just stress" but I had to force him to listen to me and I had to keep repeating myself to get him to listen. I know I'm young but it's my heart I would like to live for a lot longer. whether it be stress or not I want my cardiologist to listen and rule things out before chalking it off as stress.

You go into these situations with a air of skepticism. I was fortunate to re-leaved of that and understand a lot more about my future. It was nice to know that choices were available and options open for future need.

This visit was a description of the vascular system and the repair of my 15 year old bovine aortic valve on which the "warrantee" had expired! I am 93 years old and that was another part of the discussion.

It was just one visit and a fairly short one, so time will tell if I am willing to recommend him as a provider to others. He didn't show any emotion.... He said all the right words and gave sound explanation of what he thought was going on and possible treatment options and all, but it was emotionless. I believe he is competent and have confidence in his decision making, but......

Providers answers may not be everything you want to hear because of unknown's! What will be found in the beginning of a procedure may change expectations and create delays, but your made aware.

I like Dr A. I feel he will do what is necessary to see to it that I get the very best possible care.

He is the kind of doctor I'd like more of other physicians I've met to be like. I didn't feel like I had to fight to be heard. He listened to what I had to say and showed respect. Our personalities didn't clash. I will be coming back. I want him for my cardiac physician. I like that he takes the time to listen to his patients. Very important to me!

I believe the doctor didn't take me at my word about my condition, treatment or inquire about past history including pain I have, the severity thereof. He basically dismissed my questions and said my only problem was my weight. When I stated i couldn't do much physically... he brushed it off saying I needed to push through. When I told him I was quite athletic in the past and knew how to exercise... he dismissed that as well. He never inquired what the amount of alcohol or tobacco I have decreased or increased past to present. Only that I had issues over the death of my mother (which is significant, I agree, but the amounts from a year ago, 6 months, 1 month are different.) My blood pressure swings are abnormal. He blew this off as well. Go check my history, I never had HBP before taking these medications ( if anything they were too low) and he knows this. When they took my BP, I got a sharp stabbing pain. This was dismissed as well. My concern for previous imaging from my original hospital visit on the blockage in my arm. Dismissed as well. I kept getting the feeling that he just wanted to get me out of there and wasn't interested in anything I have to say. Maybe he was overwhelmed with Covid-19 concerns ?? I don't know. I guess I am a liar. I have repeatedly complained about pain, even since the first visit and am treated as though I have no pain. I have a very high threshold for pain. I deal with pain that most people would be bed ridden for and keep going. But that pain is nowhere near the pain I get sometimes in my extremities. This doctor doesn't listen well. He hears what is said... but he doesn't LISTEN. Anyway if you would like an analogy of what my pain feels like, Email me and I will send you some photos of an er visit in which I accidentally lacerated my palm, but that didn't hurt. The needle in the cut? Yes, that hurt a bit. Not as much as the sharp pains i get on a regular basis in my extremities. I was back at work straight after the incident. (That visit, I assumed Renown new about) from 2015 in Vegas. Then you might get an understanding of my pain tolerance level. I just want to get better, if possible. Anyway, rant over... FATSO, signing off.(my attempt at inappropriate humor referring to myself) Have a great day

Dr A is a great cardiologist, and he's a great listener, takes all my concerns to heart and when I leave I know and understand the treatment plan, the new medications if be, and how to help myself to get better.

Dr. A is one of the kindest & caring dr.'s I have ever met.

He took time to go over my health information so he was prepared for the conversation

Very respectable to my needs.

Dr. Akinapelli seems friendly and caring but appears to have a quiet personality.

I had hoped to gain clarity on my heart condition but did not. It seems the doctor didn't have enough info/test results yet and I need a PT scan. Or possibly also need to see pulmonology too.

Strictly business - Did not want to talk/discuss much - Stayed with her script. Little communication.
