dr larned is the best cardiologist. he is so knowledgeable, professional, and spends time listening to my medical concerns. he has a great bedside manner and a great personality!
I was very happy with my recent visit with Dr. Larned & his PA. I have a family history of heart disease & monitor my blood pressure. After having several readings that concerned me I contacted the office as I was going out of the country in two days and was worried about the readings. I called on a Monday morning & explained my concerns & requested an appointment ASAP. The PA called me later in the day Monday and we discussed the issues & the fact that I was going out of the country Wednesday morning. She was able to fit me in for an appointment with her Tuesday morning & said I would be seen by the doctor too. I really appreciate that they were able to see me on such short notice.
always a pleasure to meet with dr larned and associates.
*Dr. Larned is one of the nicest and polite doc I have every had.
My visit to Dr. Larned was just like my other visits - excellent. He takes as much time as necessary to explain anything on your mind, and in a way that's easy to understand. He makes you feel important, and that your health is of utmost importance to him. I would like to say something about Dr. Larned that was not part of this visit, but something that speaks to his character, compassion and care of his patients. Two years ago, my father was in Holy Cross Hospital where he eventually passed away. He was not admitted under Dr. Larned's instructions, but Dr. Larned was aware he was a patient. I was with my father when Dr. Larned came in - just to see him, see how he was, and tell him it was an honor and pleasure to have been able to serve as his doctor. He didn't have to do that - but he did. That spoke volumes about him as a person and a medical professional. I realize this had nothing to do with my visit, but I wanted someone - whoever reads these surveys and makes notes about the doctors - to know how incredibly special that was, and how it touched my father, my husband, and myself. What a wonderful, lovely gesture on his part.
Dr. Larned is always great, friendly and knowledgeable.
A great physician that has a very good manner, who shows real concernfor patients
Visited Dr. Larned for routine quarterly followup visit. He checked my vitals, asked about my health, and answered my questions. Nice, short, to the point visit. Always great seeing Dr. Larned.
Dr. Larned noted that I had not taken a lipid profile blood test for at least a year and a half. He provided a prescription for one.
This was a first visit with Dr. Larned. Wait time was minimal and I was glad that [PA] was present for the visit. I like the team approach to patient care.
Very kind and compassionate and knowledgeable.

Dr. Larned was excellent at this visit (as always) and clearly explained issues related to my current condition and issues with medications. Very satisfied with Dr. Larned's care and the care provided by his office staff.

Dr. Larned is an excellent cardio doctor and I would not go to anyone else.

Dr. Larned is both very knowledgable abut cardiovascular issues, but also a remarkable personality. While covering all pertinent issues, he has a enjoyable conversation style that puts me, and I would guess most patients, at ease. He rates on the top tier of all physicians I have delt with in my 78 years.
Very professional and did not feel rushed through my time with him. Thought the process from start to finish as far as check in and out was run like a fine machine. All positive. Was treated with a good and positive and professional attitude by staff. I had to use my lunch time for the visit and was impressed that my time has honored.
He is always very professional and caring and responds clearly to all my questions.
was very impressed and very pleased with Dr. Larned
Dr. Larned is the best. Thorough, patient and knowledgeable
Dr. Larned is awesome. When he is with me in the exam room he is totally focused and makes me feel as though he has all the time in the world for me, his patient. I know all doctors are very busy these days but he has the gift of a great "bedside manner.". His assistants are equally good. They return calls promptly and always take care of prescription refills the same day. Great team. They are the reason I'll stay with Holy Cross.
Dr. Larned and everyone in the are the best! Never a complaint!
Dr Larned very caring physician.
