Excellent Care Keeps Marcella Thompson “Going”
When she moved to this area, Marcella Thompson chose Cape Fear Cardiology because she thought their office just had a nice “feeling.” She’s very glad she followed her initial instinct.
“Dr. Klang takes the time to really talk with me,” Marcella says, noting that he is good at making her a partner in her own care and helping her avoid the need for more serious intervention. “And the staff is so supportive.”
In particular, Marcella cites the care and concern of Ruth Soper. “I’ve had a number of tests performed, including a nuclear stress test that takes several hours. Ruth makes me feel so at ease. She’s always upbeat, treats me with such respect, and keeps me comfortable and informed.”
Marcella also appreciates the professionalism, respect for appointment times, and convenience at Cape Fear Cardiology. “They do everything there, so I don’t have to run around to different places,” she says.
“They keep me going, and that’s a wonderful thing,” says Marcella, who looks forward to seeing her 17-year-old daughter become a physician and to being a first-time grandmother for the baby her son and his wife are expecting. What’s more, staying “heart healthy” means Marcella can continue the catering business – Marcey’s Garden – she runs from her home.
