There was not a long wait time but, I did have an appointment scheduled. Dr Hancock seems to be a very well trained and capable specialist in Cardiac medicine. I actually credit Dr Hancock with saving my life. My heart attack occurred while I was in recovery (coming out of anesthesia) after colon Cancer Surgery. Dr Hancock saw my EKG was indicative of a major (MI) heart attack. It was Dr Hancock who rushed me from recovery to the Cath Lab. Three stents later into almost totally blocked arteries on my heart. He is now keeping me on the path to keeping my heart healthy so it can begin a long and slow process of rebuilding the 45% that was damaged. I still have a very long, slow, and difficult path to repair and to regain what was so quickly lost. Probably caused by my love of really great southern cooking and all of those well marbled beef prime rib and Lobster dinners I have so greatly enjoyed in the previous years. This is one of the things I have lost, that bring tears to my eye
