My Approach to Care

As I studied cardiology I became fascinated with the heart's electrical system. Helping people with fast or slow heart rates is something that I really enjoy, and it allows me to work with people of all ages and backgrounds. When I meet with patients, it's important to me to make sure that whatever we decide in our plan of care, that it's based on information sharing and joint decision making.

Every patient is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Making care and treatment decisions together usually results in much better outcomes.

The very best
September 01, 2022
Felt very comfortable with provider that he had my best interest in mind
August 18, 2022
Yes, the only problem I had down at the hospital was I had to sit in the room after the nurse had talked to me for one hour before the doctor came in. I think that's a little bit extreme. If it's going to be that way, I'd put TV sets in the rooms.
August 17, 2022
Yes, we we never did talk about the monitor that I wore on my chest for 2 weeks and what the problem was or what, why it fluctuated up and down.

I appreciated the time that he spent with us. He asked for more of the back story, and listened to my explanation of the recent events and the family history. My wife was with me, and she is a nurse at Bryan. She also had a good impression of the doctor and how he handled the visit.

Had a great office visit with Doctor K
January 25, 2022
I guess we just weren't clear with each other. I came away with a different impression than what is actually going to be the next step. It's mostly my fault for not directly ad asking the question that I wanted answered. I just thought I understood what he was saying. I really wanted to know if this, this pacemaker was going to be like if it was I would have to depend on it to live. I just assumed it was just helping the heart and apparently it's going to be life dependency, and that's my problem for not coming out now being directly and not getting our facts straight. Thank you.
January 18, 2022
They got us in even though somehow our appointment got cancelled. They were all really kind and we got in in a timely manner. Treated my dad with respect and kindness!
January 13, 2022
