    I would love to have much more thorough understanding of my heart and the meds overall - I'm a retired psych RN with only enough knowledge to worry me but not enough to bootstrap myself into aMore useful level of knowledge of especially the meds. Suggested reading materials?

    Worst experience with a doctor I have ever had with out question let alone a cardiologist. Mailhot did not listen to my concerns he did not address my concerns he did not go over all of my tests that have recently been completed he was rude and unprofessional. He also entered false information into my medical record.

    This doctor was extremely generous with his time!! He was very thorough looking through all my previous care through UCSF and before. He explained everything very clearly and treated us (my husband came along as and extra set of ears) as if we were fellow medical professionals. He gave me a 15 page packet with a resume of the conversation of the visit and care instructions and links for further education about the medical issues we were concerned with. He was GREAT.
