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.

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

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

I was very very disappointed with the patient service from the one of the staff. she was not friendly she was... Short, didn't really seem to be that interested in... just was only doing her job and I'm not saying she didn't do a job well, but that was my first impression and I was very disappointed at that point in North Central. Thank you very much.

Dr. Rand and his team were exceptional. Dr. Rand and his nurse explained everything very clearly and were very down to earth. The team did everything possible to make me comfortable and to explain things along the way. I was quite worried when I started the day and I was very relieved at the end of the day.
