Patient Comments (1)
Huntington Station, NY |
I went to see Dr Schecter when I was seeing a cardiologist who recommended me to see another electrophysiologist in his practice who didn’t take my insurance. However, after a long wait he finally came in & looked me up & down & said you are a healthy young girl. Go see a psychologist & you will be just fine & he sent me on my way. I ended up seeing an EP in the city & got an EP study where they found arrhythmias & took care of what they could & put me on meds for the rest & did other tests.
