Dr. Bolla is a phenomenal Cardiologist and I rate him 10 out of 10.

Reviewed on May 31, 2018

Customer service needs improvement. My phone experiences with Dr. Bolla's secretary were frustrating-from demeanor to relaying information to setting an appointment. I had to call for results of bloodwork after 2 wks. had passed, only to be told Dr. Bolla did not order the tests, that the nurse practitioner (with office of my PCP) ordered the bloodwork. Mychart , online service, indicated they were ordered by Dr. Bolla. I was referred to see a cardiologist by the nurse practitioner at my PCP's office due to some symptoms I told her about.

I feel very secure with Dr.Bolla's care and attention. He fully understands my condition and helps me cope with it.
