“I recently had a few appointments at One Wellbeck Heart Health. Each time I was greeted in a friendly way, staff were helpful and took very good COVID precautions. Appointments were generally on time and not rushed. Everyone was very competent. I most enjoyed having almost all of my diagnostic tests located in one area which minimized the time I spent going to and from appointments. I would definitely recommend One Wellbeck Heart Health.”
