This provider listened and took my health concern seriously, she was very knowledgeable, taking her time with the visit. She allowed me room to ask questions. This provider used my past experiences and habits to rule out other potential causes. Overall I feel very informed, validated in my health concern and was told about preventive measures I can take to attempt to lessen my symptoms which was extremely helpful!

Excellent visit

Jun 17, 2023


She's very knowledgeable, and shows real interest in my condition and history. Very good at explaining cardiology questions. She doesn't "talk down" when I ask questions. Open minded about approaches to my condition. Keeps in good touch with my primary physician. A++ grade

May 25, 2023


The conversations we had were mostly good. [...], it's quite rushed. For example, I had one more question that I really would have liked to ask, but I was in a hurry to get all questions out and I forgot that one. I don't feel like I will get that answered for the next 3-4 months (until my next appointment) and it's about what to do in an emergency that could happen with my condition, so that seems like not a great situation. [...]

Apr 19, 2022


During the prior visit Dr. Schallek was easy to talk to and understanding of the things I explained. I appreciated the time she took with me to listen and explain. [...] she was short at times when I was asking questions or trying to explain things. Not sure if she was having a tough day but very different change in demeanor for the worse since prior visit.

Apr 02, 2022


Dr. Schallek is just the right cardiologist for me!

Mar 29, 2022


This was my first visit with this provider. She is better than my previous provider. It will take time to feel more confident in getting to know her and she getting to know me.

Mar 26, 2022


This was the first time I saw Dr. Schallek. (I was very lucky to get an appt. so quickly because there was a cancellation) Dr. Schallek took time with me to explain my condition and to explore treatment options. I felt confident that she was approaching my treatment from an approach of best practice.
