Dr Salinger seems very knowledgeable and a very like able man. I'm not sure my concerns and fears about my heart were understood. I would've liked some information or reassurance that I wasn't in immediate danger. Also, I left unclear about how things will unfold going forward. I understand my tests and dates and times, but there was talk of other doctors, and I am unsure of when or how I will get the results to the tests he ordered. when I was leaving they asked if I needed to schedule a follow up and I did t even know. I guess I figured I would wait and see if you guys call me after the tests and I would ask then what to do. I did t feel like I could get that answer from. of course, I was very stressed having heart issues so maybe he didn't understand my levelof stress or concern. everyone was very nice and punctual throughout my visit. My only negative thought was about info and follow up. thank you for the pleasant visit.
