I am very disappointed to learn how you feel. I have always treated you and your husband as my own. As you may recall I emergently placed a pacemaker many years ago in your husband to save his life when he passed out at a meeting. I have never done any unnecessary procedures on you or anyone. I am bafffled where you are getting this info you have written about. You never had aortic aneurysm and were never told of it. I would request you talk to me in person if you still have any concerns. Thanks
