My bp has never been under control until meeting with Dr Slim. He encouraged me to get checked for sleep apnea as a way to reduce my med intake. Now on CPAP and sleeping great. Great Dr! My only complaint is not with him but Pulse. When I first experienced heart issues, pulse was very slow to get me in. It was like 2 months. Unacceptable.
