Patient Comments (4)
in Perry City, UT |
I'd suffered with severe symptoms brought on by Atrial-fibrillation for nine years, and after three internal ablations, I received the bad news that I was one of the few that procedure didn't help. The electrophysiologist said I'd have to learn to live with it. However, in January 2010, I underwent mini-maze surgery with Dr. Affleck at Ogden Regional, and he successfully eliminated the problem. I have not had another recurrence! Thank you, Dr. Affleck, for giving me my life back!

Dr. Affleck makes me feel like I'm his only patient and is not in a rush to get to his next patient. He has a sense of humor and puts me at ease, while explaining exactly what he's doing.
