Met Dr. Phang in Jan. 2017. I had a pulmonary embolism. Checkups went well. On 8 Feb.2020 I did not feel well. Went to the ER. The doctor was contacted and it an overnight stay for observation was recommended. Full workup and monitoring. When I saw the doctor he advised my heart rate had dropped to a low point in the mid 30's. Pros and Cons of a pacemaker were discussed and thanks to Dr. Phang's excellent medical knowledge and care, along with the staff at St. Peter's Hospital, I'm still enjoying life and family. 5 stars are not enough to express my gratitude.
