This questionnaire does not cover this visit. It was for a pacemaker check up and I did not see the doctor. Pacemaker was tested by a practitioner & read out.

My appointment was scheduled for 2 PM. As requested, I arrived early. I was taken back to the exam room at 2:30. I had seen a resident, but the actual doctor visit began at 4 PM. This was a 2 hour wait and caused significant inconvenience to me regarding my obligations that afternoon. My experience with the doctor was extremely positive. The wait time was inexcusable.

I was not pleased with the attitude of a "Nurse" or "assistant" named [name deleted to protect privacy] in this office. She just seemed to have a bad attitude as she gave me an electrocardiogram. She just seemed kind of "Pissed off". Also when I checked out with her. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to say this. I did consider writing a letter.

My [date deleted} appointment with Dr McAnulty was cancelled WITHOUT NOTIFYING ME. I WAS NOT TOLD MY APPOINTMENT was cancelled until I called to confirm. I had to rebook two months out. I think I should have received a EMail informing me of the cancellation and offered a replacement appointment.

Dr. Mcanulty has been the most wonderfulspecialty doctor I've ever had. He is a kind, receptive and caring doctor. He truly caresabout his patients health and exploring and discussing the best treatments/options for your heart condition. I've had the pleasure of knowing him for almost 30 years. First in a professional setting and then as my cardiologist after being diagnosed with neuromuscular disease that affects my heart. I am sadto know that he will be retiring most likely in the next year. There are very few doctors anymore like him. it will a big loss to your cardiology group when he retires. I have been fortunate to have such a stellar physician involved in my care. Thank you.

I think that Dr. McAnulty is a great doctor and is genuinely concerned about his patients. My only complaint is that I always encounter (1) a somewhat extended delay in being able to get an appointment with Dr. McAnulty, and (2) more significantly, a substantial delay (usually more than 45 minutes) on my appointment date before Dr. McAnulty is able to see me. He always has a medical intern or resident meet with me and examine me first, and then accompany him at my appointment -- I do not mind that at all, but I just wish that he could be more on time for his appointments. Since I live in [location deleted], I can run into substantial commute traffic between downtown Portland and SW Washington if there is an extended delay in getting in to see the doctor. On balance, however, despite the delay issue, I would highly recommend Dr. McAnulty as I feel that he embodies the very best qualities of an excellent doctor in terms of caring about his patients, attention to detail, up-to-date medical knowledge, and commitment to his profession. He is truly a class act.

I had an extremely frustrating time trying to schedule this appointment, was delayed 2.5 weeks after my referral from urgent care because we were waiting for pre-authorization from my insurance, and when I finally had approval, I had wait another month to get in for this visit. When I arrived, first I answered a series of questions from a nurse. Then I answer the exact same set of questions from a medical student and got a brief exam. Then I sat alone in the exam room for 30 minutes. Then I got the same exam from the doctor, along with a group of medical students. He reviewed an EKG that had been taken 1.5 months prior and did no further testing on me. He didn't provide much explanation for the symptoms I was having, and was not convincing in the treatment he prescribed. This entire process has felt like an enormous waste of my time and energy.

Dr. McAnulty is kind, patient, is a good listener, as well as a good advisor. He is calm, and creates an atmosphere of calm. He is a diagnostician who uses his acquired skill and knowledge to discover the patient's state of health as well as the medical information provided. He is very positive in talking to patients.

It is an exceptional experience. Dr McAnulty clearly advised me on what need not be done, what I can continue doing, and what other steps I could consider weighing risks-costs-benefits -- at the same time giving medical interns insights into ideal health practices.

I really appreciate how Dr. Mcanulty speaks with you. He takes his time and makes sure that everything that you want to talk about is covered. He makes you feel validated and as if your time is important and your health is important. Many physicians treat me because I am young it doesn't matter right now. He knows in the long run and right now it does. He wants my life to be better. I really appreciated that.

John McAnulty is arguably the finest doctor I have ever associated with. His skills are excellent, as attested to the students, interns, and residents who almost always attend his examinations. Combined with his skills, however, is a humanity that is rare among doctors, or people in general, for that matter. He is simply a highly compassionate and caring human being who also is a cardiologist and I'm very thankful he's my cardiologist.

Dr. McAnulty is sometimes behind schedule but it is always because there has been a cardiac emergency and he is needed else where. I am comforted to know that if I was the emergency he would be there. I do not mind waiting for him. His staff is always very respectful and keeps me informed about why he is late and expected return

When I first called for an appointment, the receptionist did not listen carefully and tried to give me an appointment a month away. Only when I persisted and restated the problem did I get what I needed. If I was not already a patient, I would have called another doctor.

Special mention of excellence for Diane who greeted me at the incoming desk. She has a talent for making you feel relaxed and welcome! Kristin the nurse who answered my online questions was great. And as far as Dr McAnulty well.... I went out of network to see him ...and am I glad I did! He is so wise and patient. He answered all my questions with such care. I have already seen marked improvement in how I feel since I implemented one of his suggestions. MOst importantly, I don't feel the need to second guess. His training and experience are so evident I already feel trust. I think I will look into switching my health care insurance to Legacy.

not everything can be resolved by medicines or chemicals. i understand that. i'm trying to understand why a simple medical issue can't be resolved. atrial fib should be simple, to figure out why the heart can't synchronize the signal to tell the heart chambers when to contract. it seems simple in a car engine. i think researchers are looking in the wrong places. so, one needs an electrical source, of precise amount, a way to deliver that energy, a way to make that energy available at the correct precise time, make all those available without fail.
