Told me I was (Vagal) and to take a PPI when I was having Ventricular tachycardia w/ syncope. Never looked my loop until days later and I had to go elsewhere to have an emergency ICD placed. In my opinion at least for the safety of myself I consider him a very dangerous provider- again my opinion... He's also very aggressive in his management - has a high level of procedures compared to peers... but whatever works for you! He appears kind, but will change his tune once there is a disagreement or complication. He will find someone else to blame- always. I knew him well- so VERY disappointed. This is not a reflection on the organization as there are several other good providers to choose from.
