I had a scan that showed potential blockage and was concerned since I am a runner/athletic. I wanted a cardiologist that could relate to me and was so lucky to find Dr. Getchel. No rushing; listens with empathy; carefully explains things. I did stress testing and at my followup he told me how he had studied my situation and found two studies related to endurance and calcium that fit my exact profile. I was put on a statin and cleared to run again! Was SO impressed with his homework for me!
