I have been a patient at the UCLA Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Health program for about 5 years. I’d describe the overall clinical experience as “knowledge and dedication to women’s unique cardiovascular needs with compassionate care.” Although UCLA is a huge medical institution, Dr. Karol Watson and her team use an individualized “whole person” (mind/body) approach to patient care, wellness and prevention. Personalized care with all of the resources of one of the country’s best research institutions. Two thumbs up!
