Superb! When my husband was in the hospital with an unknown condition he developed atrial flutter. Dr. Rigden came to his room within the hour after having an EKG and explained what was happening. They decided to try medication to try to get the heart back into rhythm. Two days later Dr. Rigden and his nurse literally rolled him into the lab to do the procedure to shock his heart into rhythm. Fast forward 3 months to the follow up appt., Dr. Rigden sent my husband for a stress test and found he had some abnormalities so he scheduled him for a heart cath. He actually called my husband that night to give him the diagnosis himself! Talk about bedside manners!! The next night I ended up taking my husband to the ER due to chest pressure and on Sunday morning Dr. Rigden was at my husband's bedside at 6:00AM! Due to Dr. Rigden being pro-active and diligent my husband will be healthy for the rest of his life! We can't thank Dr. R enough and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for anyone!
