My husband was implanted with an ICD in 2015. The doctor was professional but seemed reluctant, at times, to explain things to us when we asked. I thought, at the time, that it could have been a cultural thing. We moved away in 2016 and have not had any issues until recently when his device started emitting alerts, on a Sat. night during a snowstorm. I came to the realization that the team had never provided us with enough information to understand what was happening. Our new team probably assumed that we had been provided with the 100 plus page brochure that should have been provided when he was implanted. I found it on the Internet! I also used YouTube to hear what the alerts sound like. Not very pleased with that whole Albany experience! Patients deserve to be informed!

After being admitted to St. Peter’s via an emergency room visit for what we believed was a pulled muscle my fiancé was diagnosed with hyper ventricular tachycardia. We were able to be seen by Dr. Sosa Suarez... THE BEST doctor we could have had. Dr. Sosa Suarez is patient, thorough, explains everything, and was very, very professional. My fiancé had the Ablation Procedure which was performed by Dr. Suarez and is now thanks to Dr. Suarez is living a normal life. Highest respect for this man.
