Patient Comments (1)
in Purcellville, VA |
Last week I had a pacemaker implant. Unfortunately immediately afterward problems arose and I was readmitted to INOVA Loudoun Hospital. Dr. Sofko, of Virginia Heart, was the attending cardiologist. She was caring, concerned, informative, and above all, very professional. She was very detailed in our discussion of what happened and the way forward. Plus she has a wicked sense of humour and is a knowledgeable historian. Virginia Heart should be honored to have her on the staff.
