I arrived at hospital with chest pain.I was hooked up on teleloty be decided to put a monitor on me and let me go home.They left and my heart stopped everyone rushed in . It started back by itself.Did said I needed a cath. Immediately. The cath showed no problems the doc was baffled. I went up to the heart tower my heart stopped again. It started back as before the head nurse asked if she could check me out. I said yes of course. She listened to my heart for a minute and said I know your problem. I asked and said pericarditus. I asked why the doc didn't find the problem. Well it turns out the experts cardiologist didn't use a simple stethoscope when he did his exam. He was too quick to do expensive procedures.

Dr. William Abernethy is a great interventional cardiologist. He is knowledgeable and caring. His skills as invasive-interventional cardiologist saved me from doing an open-heart bypass surgery.

Since having Dr. Trichon monitor and advise my heart failure and pulmonary hypertension I have gone through having a CarioMems implant which went without a hitch and healed just fine. I am most grateful for his caring thoughtful advice and treatments. Thank you Dr. Trichon

Dr Hansen is hands down the best cardiologist I’ve had in over 25 years of many different ones He listens kindly and carefully to his patients concerns and gives easy to understand answers, he even calls to speak personally to you if necessary Very dedicated man. You feel he has the problem under control and knows ways out of difficult situations he makes me feel cared for and that my wellbeing is important to him He organized two procedures with other doctors that have greatly improved my heart function and himself performed a successful cardio inversion that restored normal heart rhythm I highly recommend this super nice and smart doctor

Saw this doctor 3 times in six years.( on paid lecture tour) He Installed anInternal Cardiac Device (ICD)in July 2014. Received more than a thousand - two thousand shocks in a span of 7 years. In April 2020 was brought to the ER after 350 + episodes. He was on vacation another Dr recommended an ablation . It was finally performed at Duke who immediately took off the medicine that was causing irregular heartbeats causing the ICD to fire. I insisted that an ablation be done in 2015 but Dr Souza said it was dangerous and changed the Amiadarone for Quinidine which caused the same results. Very disappointed and sad in his handling this situation that caused me distress for 6 years in delaying the ablation.

Inept doctor.ICD by Metronic installedin 2014. Had me on different meds which caused more shocks due to irregular heart beats complicated by the medications . He could not give me the number of my shocks. Claims all have been erased.I estimate the number of episodes to be over 1000. I saw him personally 3 times in 6 years. I have an idea . The reason is his lecture tour and reimbursements from Metronic and other pharmaceutical compannies. You can see these on "Dollars for Docs" provided by Pro Publica. I am unable to show you on this review It's about 400,000 in fees paid to him . Way over the national average ! April 2020, was admitted again to ER . This time for more than 300 + shocks. Fortunately he was "on vacation " again. Anotherdoctor was on duty . He recommended an ablation which I discussed previously with Souza but always told me it was dangerous, that a change of meds again would be better despite my objections Had the ablation at Duke 7/1/2020. No Shocks. Disgusted

Dr. Lim takes the time to be personal and he listens to what I have to say and answers any questions. I have been a patient of his for many years, and I credit him for helping me get back on my feet after having a heart attack and finding out I needed a pace maker.

Dr Abernethy literally saved my life in October of 2015! I had blacked out multiple times and once even went into a scary catatonic state. Dr Abernethy put me on a heart monitor and within 3 days he called me to get right up to Mission Hospital in Asheville for a pacemaker implant. He told me that my heart was literally stopping and that I might not survive another one! Five years later I have not had a single issue with my heart! His care and concern saved my life!

I had my first visit with Dr. Wharton today after moving here from Florida. I was quite impressed that he had read my file and new my history without me having to reiterate it all. He explained everything very well and was extremely polite. "Chairside manner" was respectful. I greatly appreciate that he drives from Asheville to service our community in Highlands.

He discounted everything I said. He spoke to me in generalizations. All he did was listen to my heart and lungs and talk and told me they don't test blood sugar and I had to go to a kidney specialist. Blood sugar issues have everything to do with high blood pressure. Medicare is getting ripped off
