Great staff. Doctor Peizner is very compassionate and helpful. Always listens and takes time to explain any issues.

1. I see this cardiologist once a year only. 2. I requested an EKG before seeing Dr. P. 3. He seems (over 6 yrs.) comfortable with my strong use & belief in alternative, meds & healing. I do not ingest any pharma drugs. I use about 13 supplements daily.

Dr. Peizner took a lot of notes, used my self reported questionnaire and my on-line medical record as well as my answers to questions to get to know my backstory. He was collaborative in discussing plan of care and how to proceed. All my questions were answered/addressed. I was treated with courtesy and he clearly was engaged with considering my health, responses and life situation.

Everybody was very kind and helpful.

The doctor was very nice and respectful. I felt very welcomed by the receptionist and staff. A few comments I have for improvement include paperwork and communication. I filled out everything necessary in a digital format online but was asked to fill out the same information in person. That seemed a little redundant so maybe that process could be updated in the future for myself or other patients. I was frustrated that I arrived 20 minutes early for my appointment but was not seen by the doctor until over an hour after my scheduled time. I completely understand that the medical field is short staffed and very busy at this time, but did not feel supported or communicated with as I waited. When I went out to the staff to clarify on time frame, I felt like there wasn't concern for me waiting the entire time. Additionally at the end of my visit I did not feel supported by the MA that was supposed to assist me in getting my next visit scheduled, or labs drawn. I felt like I was a burden to this employee and I did not feel supported in getting my scheduled visit completed or questions answered regarding labs or future appointments. That being said I felt like Dr. P was very supportive and treated me with great respect. I feel if some things have been different with communication from the MA and other staff and setting expectations of the visit ahead of time it would've been a more positive experience.

Paperwork packet mailed ample time before appointment. Included a map, but didn't Identify where on the map, also failed to include information about front door closure due to covid. I arrived on campus on time, but backtracking to find an open door, waiting for covid security check, and then an 'escort' to the atrium made me late. The receptionist was very hostile, which felt unfair since the paperwork they mailed gave misleading information. I was a new patient. The medical assistant was warm and efficient. The doctor was amazing. One of the best medical experiences in my life.

  Jul 6, 2022
To be clear, Dr Peizner is a referral specialist and not my normal doctor. It seems that the questions were something one might ask about one's primary care physician. So I hope I've answered the questions satisfactorily.

Scheduling @ Legacy Emanuel was very difficult & the dept. was overworked & understaffed. It took 4 calls to get an appt. for a CT scan.
