It's fair to say I was anxious about this visit because I have never been referred to a cardiologist before. Dr. McPherson listened to my history and was genuinely concerned about my health. He gave me some care plan options and let me choose how I wanted to proceed with my care. He was very easy to talk to, which made me feel less anxious. He's very knowledgeable, has a great bedside manner and I would definitely recommend him to others.
