Dr. Ryan (and many others) were very diligent and thorough in finding the diagnosis for my problem. I am so very grateful for thatUofU Patient March 14, 2015
Dr. Ryan was so approachable and genuinely kind. He seemed to have really read and understood many of my medical records and complicated cardiac history, including extensive iatrogenic injury leading to heart failure. Yet, he did not rely on records that are often inaccurate; he took time to ask me to tell me story, in my own words and made the patient experience one of compassion and caring. He is a man of great compassion, knowledge and was on top of everything, with regard to logical next steps to identify factors that are contributing to progressive symptoms. He is so intelligent and exceptional in every way. He is the physician that every patient and family member, wishes they could find during times of suffering. Thank you.UofU Patient March 03, 2015
