Dr Gidney did a great job with my ablation procedure. I feel so much better now. I will be trusting him again for a Minuteman procedure to get me off blood thinners. Can't wait!! He's a gem! Totally trust!

Dr. Gidney and his PA Megan are so supportive and professional. He convinced me to have ablation, and I feel so great. Back to my exercise routine, much energy, and no more depression Thanks so much Megan and Dr. Gidney.

Dr. Brett is extremely personable, sensitive, and concerned about my cardiac health. He went over my history, and concurred with me that doing a cardiac ablation was in my best interests. He listened to my story and even commented about my book that is now on Amazon, "The Soul of Caregiving, A Caregiver's Guide to Healing and Transformation."

What do you say to someone who gives you your life back? I'll start with thank you, I am so grateful. I had a pulse like the bingety-bangety school bus, but now it's beating rhythm like a big bass drum. Highest recommendation.
