Dr. Baranowski recommended adding a medication to slow her heart versus an ablation of the AV node, which was recommended by our local Electrophysiolist. The meds he prescribed are working. Carole sleeps peacefully through the night. Before she would wake up about 4 or 5am with pressure on her chest and difficulty in breathing.

nothing to complain about at all. did not wait very long at registration or at EKG or at electrophysiology with Dr Baronowski. his nurse and himself were extremely polite and informative. I guess if I had only one problem, it was that they did not have the information they were supposed to of had from my other doctors and I was led to believe they did have it by both my doctors locally and by who scheduled my appointment at Cleveland clinic. I was in my family physicians office and watched him send both the reports electronically when he did the referral. I am wearing the zio patch heart monitor currently for 14 days. we will see what he learns from it amd how promptly he can get a plan for the condition if there can be a plan at all.
