    Excellent cardiologist. I'm a physician and have a specific take on that. He made two medications changes based upon new literature that will spare me side effects and pull burden. Very knowledgeable.

    The provider gave great instructions about follow-up but noone from the clinic contacted me to give me next steps - I waited three days then I rang back

    Dr. Fung ordered a test for me and said that his office would be in touch to schedule - took me a week of calling to get thru to the office to get the number for scheduling the test.
