Very professional, honest and caring during my appointment.

I expected more than just looking at my records and deciding that the medication to control my heart rate needed to be increased to a higher dosage to prevent the heart from being damaged due to the increased heart rate. I expected to hear other alternatives to take care of this condition, i.e., pace maker, etc. rather than just increasing the dosage and if it made me dizzy to go back to the lower dosage. No request for follow up was required by the doctor - which I also thought was unusual since it would seem that the doctor would want to see me again to see how my heart was doing in 2 weeks or in a month. It was like I was being told to increase my dosage and decide on my own if it needed to be decreased - and by the way don't come back here again for assistance.
