I HAVE HAD BAD SHORTNESS OF BREATH FOR MANY YEARS AND IT HASN'T GOTTEN MUCH WORSE. I WAS ADMITTED TO THE MACON HEART CENTER IN MACON GA AND DR THARPE WAS MY DOCTOR. HE TOOK PLENTY OF TIME WITH ME AND MY TESTS. DID A HEART ECHOGRAM AND A TEE TEST. FINALLY, I KNOW MUCH MORE THAN IN THE PAST WITH THE TESTS. I AM SO PLEASED AND VERY SATISFIED WITH DR THARPE AND HOPE HE WILL TAKE ME ON AS A NEW PERNAMENT PATIENT ..
