I have been a patient with Dr. Larned for the past two years. He and his staff have always provided EXCELLENT cardiology health care to me.
All in all it went fairly well. I could not understand a portion of the handwritten instructions concerning how to take new medications and which of my older medications to stop taking. There were too many medical abbreviations! I called the office to seek help, left a message, but did not get a return call. Luckily I have a friend who is a doctor and he was able to translate.
