New patient after previous cardiologists in FL and AL both retired. Was able to schedule the initial appointment within a week, which was nice. Dr. Gertler spent lots of time explaining in simple terms for me, about a recent ECG anomaly noted by my GP. Very thorough review of my history and things to watch for. He discussed additional tests to perform. Overall, very impressed. Nurse and staff were efficient too. Nice facility and easy access from I459.
