Things seemed to move very fast when preparing for my surgery. TheHospital staff (Carrie) made me feel so at home that being nervous was not an option. I’m so thankful to Dr Dunnington for saving my life. I’m in recovery and doing well.

Dr Dunnington successfully eliminated my atrial fib (24 months ago and counting) He has a can-do attitude and inspires ease and confidence. Dr Dunnington is oriented toward FIXING your problem- not just prescribing medication while hoping for the best.
