My visit was with Dr. Kummer, who then set up a Cardiac Pet/CT Scan and a ECHO Cardiogram. Dr. Kummer is a very good doctor and I trust his decisions. I place my faith and fate into the hands of the Bryan Heart medical team.

I would tell them that he listens to you, answers any questions that you may have, and goes over your medical chart very carefully.

I very much admire Dr. Kummer’s ability and manner. He doesn’t make you feel rushed and takes time to explain and listen to questions.

Dr kummer is very patient, knowledgeable and understanding, doesn't harass you about your bad habits just encourages you to change them.

I was taken care of in a timely manner, both in getting a date to see Dr. Kummer and in the followup CT that was ordered. I needed the results two days after the CT so I could proceed with a pre-op physical, and my GP had that information when I arrived. Thank you.
