    This guy was a joke. It was clear he didn't want to see what was causing my husbands syncope events. We informed the staff and doc that they occur with mild exertion like walking and what did they do, had him lay in a bed for 24 hours so that they could record no issues and bounce him. The doctor never even came back to tell us what was going on or why he was doing this, he just had the nurse tell us he was discharging him. Wow! Horrible Doctor.
