Patient Comments (1)
in Ft Lee, NJ |
Dr. Ehler prescribed me antiarrhytmic drug (propafenone) for my atrial fibrillation, which usually given first time at a clinic or hospital to monitor response to this drug. He asked me to take EKG after 2 days of taking the drug, send the results to his office and call him to discuss my reaction to the drug. I did as he requested, calling him for twice and leaving my phone number with the secretary. Doctor never called me back. I stopped taking the drug which very negatively affected me.
