Rochester, MN |
I worked with Dr. Scher at Polyclinic Hospital in Harrisburg PA many, many years ago. He was our first electrophysiologist and dragged us kicking and screaming into the world of EP. Glad to see he is still practicing and would rate him highly in terms of experience and breaking into a new role.
