Customer Question
Only if by a...

Only if by a cardiologist.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, of course! Getting a loop recorder implanted since I have a fib once every couple yrs. I have had to be cardioverted before and I cannot find any information even from the medical office about WHAT IF I GO IN A FIB WITH THIS LOOP RECORDER I HATE THE IDEA OF AND NEED CARDIOVERSION...ELEC. LIKE TWICE BEFORE?????????? Can you do it with it in, I think not? Also can PET scans be done? If you can help with this with a cardiologist or elctrophysocist ok if not I can't be helped.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Vertigo, cancer free from breast c. On fleicanide and dialtizem for heart and blood thinner.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

I don't know what you mean. I see cardiologist regularly for yrs.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
