Patient Comments (1)
in Cordova, TN |
I am a 51yo female with no past cardiac history. I went to the ER with what I thought was esophageal spasms, but in fact I was having an acute MI. Needless to say I was terrified. They rushed me back to the cath lab but were unable to sedate me because of the emergency situation. Dr Klemis was so compassionate and talked me through the whole procedure, explaining every step of the way. He continued to reassure me, that I was going to be fine.I am very thankful that he ended up as my cardiologist
