I appreciate the fact that he seemed to spend all the time that I was asking for and he didn't seem in any hurry to get out of the room and go to his next patient. I appreciated his patience.
November 23, 2020
I received the very best of care from my doctor and from all the nurses I can encountered. I was very pleased with my care. Thank you.
November 11, 2020
Since it was later in afternoon, I felt one of technicians was in a hurry. It was like she wasn't to happy being there. Just do this do that, not very pleasant. The other two were very pleasant, considerate and professional.
October 29, 2020
Yeah, I had a very very long wait. Had about 3 1/2 hours in waiting for the doctor to get in.
October 07, 2020
I deeply appreciated the kindness of the staff and their care for my welfare during tests. They were very friendly and explained each step. They helped me feel less fearful and confident in their care. When I left I felt very calm. So grateful to the whole team.

Dr. Rand was very good as well as was his team and the staff once I was seen. The only thing I was not impressed with was when I checked in they seem to have lost my paperwork or something happened as I sat there for probably 15 minutes and several people looking after me were seen before me and I had to get up and check a couple times to see what was going on, but once they found my paperwork, they were very apologetic, but that was my only complaint.
September 25, 2020
We took the time to ask some questions that we didn't understand at previous appointments and he was so willing to go the extra mile to show on paper basically an explanation of our questions. So it was great. It was a real good help. Thank you.

What I really liked to with everybody came the came and got me for the waiting room took me to the room when it was time to move to another station for the stress test. Somebody came got me walk me right to where I was supposed to be when I finished. It was whatever I was supposed to do there. They walked me to the next station. It wasn't like we do normally do where you know, you just wander around hoping you'll find the place.

Dr. Rand is the most how do I want to say this the most the greatest doctor. I mean he he's very thorough he's very conscientious of what I need and he does his best to keep me working and doing all the tests I need to keep working. He's just the best heart doctor in the whole world as far as I'm concerned.
August 24, 2020
Hi. Yes, Dr. Rand. I really liked Dr. Rand I definitely look forward to working with him, and I would recommend him to someone else. He's got a great bed side manner. He's kind, joyful, eager to listen, eager to help, and I was very impressed. Thank you.
August 11, 2020
This staff was very friendly, very patient, and very courteous. I appreciate that very much. Thank you.
August 10, 2020
Everyone was pleasant and friendly.
August 06, 2020
I felt Dr. Elden Rand was very well informed was very helpful for me to coordinate my day to get what tests done what needed to get done. He explained them very well. I couldn't have been happier with him and I wish him the best as I'm still having some treatment with him, but he's done a fantastic job, and I'd recommend him to anyone that had need.

The only suggestion I have is to let your nurse know to remove the tape carefully after the very last CAT scan the one I had just kind of rip them off. So and more paper would be good for the monitor, too. So, thank you.
July 24, 2020
I didn't care for the nurse to meet us first.
July 20, 2020
I felt like I was well taken care of with my appointment yesterday between Dr. Rands nurse and Dr. Rand. I feel very confident that I will be okay and the answered all the questions that I had.
July 14, 2020
I'm still in pain, and I have not got my results yet. I was supposed to get them today. Thank you. Bye.
May 29, 2020
Dr. Rand and his nurse, Colleen, were incredibly useful in educating me about what was happening to me. They were also very excellent at describing what the possibilities, looking forward, were. And when you're sick or hurting, or scary things are happening to you, being able to think about the future and talk about the future in a positive way is very uplifting. And I didn't receive that until I saw Dr. Rand and nurse, Colleen. I generally do not trust the medical industry, since they make money when we are ill. When really they should make money when we are healthy. And my visit with Dr. Rand and ... Rand, and Colleen, increased my confidence in
May 20, 2020
Yes, I'm just really feel that the staff was exceptional and and went above and beyond to take care of my needs for my appointment and Dr. Rand himself was amazing and I'm very grateful . Thank you.

January 28, 2020
I find the medical staff to be attentive to my needs and my questions.
January 28, 2020
Dr. Rand was a very pleasant doctor to work with. He was very thorough in explaining everything about what was going on and what test results were going to show. His nurse was very friendly. It was a very good experience and we would highly recommend Dr. Rand for anyone that needed to have an awesome cardiologist
January 27, 2020
Yes. I just want to say I had the most amazing experience there. The staff was very accommodating and helpful and the time the doctor spent with me was amazing. I was so so impressed, and I wanted to thank everybody there. Thank you.
