"Calm demeanor & 10+ bedside manner & top notch staff"

Dr. Hulse is incredibly thorough, asks a lot of “on point” questions, practices preventative medicine, thoroughly knows his patient’s histories, and medications. He takes as much time as he needs to completely address his client’s medical concerns and is very proactive in his practices. Add to this his calm demeanor and 10+ bedside manner and top notch staff and you have a Best, SUPERSTAR Cardiologist. I consider myself very lucky.
