Dr V was not my 1st choice for cardiac surgery to repair a mitral valve. Preliminary tests were done to ensure no blockage was found prior to surgery. Three weeks later I was admitted to Gwinnett Medical for repairer or replacement of mitral valve. I didn't see Dr V for 5 out of 7 days I was in Cardiac ICU. Even though he was I the hospital, he didn't make daily visits. Following surgery, by Dr. Richard Harvey, I was told I needed a pacemaker implanted. Why? Never really got a good answer since Dr. V didn't make regular rounds to see me. As of today, April 23, 2020 I have tried to make an appointment with Dr. V and have been told I cannot see him until late May. I am having pains in my chest but no one seems to care and tell me to go to the emergency room. I AM SO DISSAPPOINTED WITH THE ACTIONS OF DR V & HIS STAFF IN ACCOMMADATING ME FOR WHAT COULD BE A LIFE THREATENING ISSUE AFTER OPEN HEART SURGERY. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.
