I started going to Lora when she was new. She was like a breath of fresh air to Kadlec. A few patients. Within six months she had me regulated to where I have not had a fib but once since I started going to her and it was quite frequently for. She's very caring, and listens and tries to help you as best she can. I hold a lot of respect for her. As does my two friends that I have referred over to Kadlec

It's always a very good experience. She's the first person out of all the doctors [...] that leveled out my arrhythmia and a fan problem. It took a while to narrow down to a medicine that works constantly for me that she's been very persistent and caring and taking care of me. My husband and I both think that she's Accomplished A major breakthrough in my health. I haven't had any a fib for a while and sell them in fact rarely have palpitations which have had all my life

Lora Bird is very down to earth. So many times medical practitioners forget that the patient is an expert in SOMETHING even if its not medicine. Lora treats people with respect, and listens, without judgment.
