VERY BRIEF 1ST APPT, MD STOOD OVER ME, IN A HURRY, HELPFUL BUT NOT FRIENDLY. I HAD 2 CARDIAC TESTS DONE AND NEVER RECEIVED A CALL OR EMAIL FROM NURSE OR MD ABOUT RESULTS AFTER 3 CALLS (I DO HAVE CARDIAC CONDITION). GAVE UP ON HIM!

I had serious VT problem missing sever heart beats per minute and causing annoying fatigue. He advised ablation procedure to remedy problem. After extensive discussion I agreed to the procedure. After the procedure the VT problem immediately disappeared. I am most thankful to Dr. Downey and also to Dr. Sean Mazer who assisted. I'm a very active 80 year old and appre?iate the new life style given to me.
