Not a problem doctor thank you for your help!

And what say you? :-)

Dr. Cameron :

Oops or angina?

Customer:

I have had every test in the world and I have a leaky valve plus the hole in my heart never completely closed after birth. I am taking Voltaren now for arthritis which brings its own set of concerns.

Dr. Cameron :

Sounds like you are ready to rock and roll to me :-)

Dr. Cameron :

In general, we do not advise viagra in the setting of coronary artery disease or severe chronic illness

Dr. Cameron :

but it appears that you have been checked out thoroughly and due diligence was done

Dr. Cameron :

I don't see any reason not to take it

Dr. Cameron :

Customer:

Thank you doctor. Have a great rest of your week!
