I developed sudden severe pain in both of my upper arms; as a physician, I suspected it was due to angina. Since my wife is disabled, I drove myself to Conroe Medical Center where the ER was great, as usual. It was not long before Dr. Pickett was doing a heart catheterization and found that the main artery to my left ventricle was trying to clot off. He identified a severe narrowing and proceeded to place a stent to open up the artery. He not only saved my life but is very personable too!
