Patient Comments (3)
Greensboro, AL |
Dr. Bouchard did not make the correct diagnosis and I continued to have problems. Finally called on a weekend when everything was really going crazy with my heart and Dr. Bouchard was on vacation so I had to see the Dr. on call who ran test after test until he found the problem and referred me to anot electrical cardiologist who scheduled me for an ablation which Dr. Bouchard said he was canceling because that was not what I needed. I proceeded with the ablation and have been doing great since.
