I thought it was very accommodating to take it. Help me with my problem the same day. I came into the clinic. I think it was great. That's working good so far. Thank you.

The staff seemed happy and friendly. I felt at ease at all times.
August 22, 2019
I was treated very well with respect, kindness and caring. One thing I might recommend is that for ladies after a treadmill, perhaps you could have some deodorant wipes or powder available. Thank you very much.

I couldn't say enough good things about the facility, from the people that checked me in, and all the way through, the doctor, he was so courteou, as was everybody else, and just seem to care and I would definitely come back again, if I needed to, and any member of my family, I was just so amazed. Thank you.
June 12, 2019
We thought we were very well taken care of and that we were met with in a timely matter, and we felt that Dr. Rand listens and explain things in a very easy to understand manner. It was an excellent experience. Thank you.

Staff very friendly and helpful.
June 06, 2019
I had a very good experience and I would recommend anybody who needs to go see another heart doctor. He was very good. Thank you.
June 05, 2019
The routine at NWH is frenetic. It seems a little odd that a facility that focuses on heart problems would be so stressful an environment. The Cardiologist and his nurse were very attentive, but the rest of the experience feels like the corporate side of the business cares nothing at all for the patient.
May 17, 2019
The entire staff was absolutely amazing.
May 17, 2019
It was the first time at the facility as with... I had a new diagnosis with my heart issue, and we were very pleased with the friendliness of all the staff there and how cordial they were, how thorough they were. We were... it was just a very nice experience and we'd like to thank everyone. Thank you.
April 24, 2019
It was a very ... it was a very good experience. They kept me relaxed. They kept me informed. Everybody was pleasant. So thank you very much. That's it.
April 17, 2019
Really helpful and truly concerned about my condition. I am waiting for the Heart Hospital to get back to me for a ultra sound that is scheduled. Thank you

His nurse had a really bad cold, and her nose was running and she was wiping it in the room. She should have had a mask on or she should have stayed home from work.
April 09, 2019
The Doctors are great but the staff from the reception area to the nurses and lab are EXCELLENT.
April 09, 2019

April 03, 2019
Very pleased with my experience.
March 27, 2019
North Central Heart was very friendly and answered our questions to the fullest. Dr. Rand was very informative explaining what was going on with my husband. He went above and beyond taking care of us. He even checked back on me after I mentioned I had seen him some time ago. North Central Heart is the place to go!!

Dr Eldon Rand and his Nurse Colleen are wonderful people to have for Dr and nurse. However, I was disappointed in the registration. I sat, waiting, and they were visiting behind the desk--three people visiting. I was the only patient waiting to be taken care of. Also, the young woman taking my vital signs did not use a very nice voice. She was very sharp toned, and expected me to immediately understand what she wanted me to do. I was not feeling well, at all; and am 79 yrs old. At this age and with these conditions, everything take longer for us to absorb and move around. My mind IS GOOD. She said to sit in different positions for the blood pressure taking, but I could not put my feet on the floor, because I am not very tall. Thank you for letting me explain my thots'. However, Dr Rand and Colleen are extremely nice.

My experience was first class in every aspect, the doctor and support staf members were wonderful.
February 28, 2019
Well, I think he talked way too fast. It was hard to cover hand some of the stuff that he was saying because it was like he was in a hurry or something, but maybe that's the way he always talked. I don't know, but I'm not sure if I got all of it. So that's it.
February 25, 2019
Everything went great.
January 28, 2019
Friendly.good outlook on life Lots of smiles that go a long way.
January 24, 2019
Service was, as usual, excellent!
January 24, 2019
All of the people I worked with, including doctor were very friendly, very attentive and I was very impressed that I did not wait long for anything, to think I was in with probably 5 different rooms, and they moved me along very well. I was very impressed.
January 21, 2019
Dr. Rand is very knowledgeable in many areas besides the heart he can solve medical problems. I've had that other doctors could not I highly recommend him. Thank you. Have a good day. Bye. Bye.

Thank you for all the help. God bless Dr Rand & the medical team for their help.
