She is very kind, friendly, and takes the time needed to discuss problems and explain.
Rockford, IL |
excellent knowledge of arrhythmias; successfully ablated me 5 years ago and is thoroughly familiar with heart disease and its many ramifications. I have complete confidence in her ability, knowledge, and technical expertise. She is an excellent electrophysiologist! Her reputation among top arrhythmia cardiologists in Chicago is outstanding!
