I maybe get one or two words in with her. she doesn't listen to me. I'd like to file a complaint and switch cardiologists please!

This was my first visit with Dr. Schima, though I did see her during a hospital stay this spring. She is now my cardiologist since Dr. Hodgeman has left the area. She answered my question clearly and concisely in way that I could easily follow.

Dr. Schima is always very concerned about my well being. If something is bothering me regarding my health, she is committed to getting it resolved and making me feel better.

Starting with a new doctor is difficult after Dr Hodgman left the practice. Dr Schima seems caring as I have multiple issues.
August 20, 2019
I didn't care for this provider at all. I researched her before my visit and she said she likes to get to know her patients. well she didn't take the time to get to know me or listen to what I had to say about my heart problems either. she too seemed rushed and just wanted to get me in and out. I didn't think she was kind nor courteous. I felt like she didn't care to hear what I had to say about my heart problems because I didn't get to say everything. she kept interrupting me.

I love Dr. Schima. she really acts like she cares what happens to me
