I saw the provider to get a 2nd opinion. She has me on tests that my original provider did not. She had a much better grasp of my situation and is being very thoughtful about my condition. She is the specialist I needed to see.

[...] (nurse for dr Van Der zee) was very good. 2nd appointment I wanted to make with the dr was with the nurse. the nurse was very nice & knowledgeable, but the dr didn't even show up for a minute-just to say hello! it would have been nice for her to come & see if I'm ok! after all she's my dr! [...] made upfor dr's absence & she was very good & helpful.

She's very attentive, warm, listens intently, offers very understandable guidance and information. In the last 10 years I've had appointments with 4 different cardiologists, she's by far the best.
