I cannot say enough good about Dr. McClennen. He performed an ablation on my husband in 2011 and after four years the few times he experienced an afib episode all I had to do was email him and I got a rapid response to clear it up. I recently saw him for an abnormal EKG he scheduled testing immediately and I received an email within days with my results. We has our complete confidence and trust!

Marnik in Sandwich, MA – Feb 21, 2017
Dr. McClennen handled my open heart surgery for a valve repair very well. But then four years later I had a heart attack. They put in a stent. He kept telling me things look good. He should have said You should exercise twice a week. It's important. After my heart attack, I had complications and was supposed to go to cardiac rehab, but I took too long and the insurance said no. He said just let it go. My regular doctor's office pursued the insurance company until they gave me an extension.
