But just like the wire in your house can undergo
wear and tear. With aging these wires can also undergo wear and tear, and you can get
slow heartbeat. And I would go to him about every six months
and he would check then he couldn’t bring up my heart rate where it had to be.
Lourdes is my Heart Hospital. Dom and Marie Marandolo
Dominic was initially sent to me about six years ago. He had both slow and rapid heartbeat
and I explained to him that the rapid heartbeat is something we can treat with medication.
But for slow heartbeat there is no medication pacemaker is probably the best choice. And
his symptoms did not get better, even after we adjusted his pacemaker. So after much deliberation,
he agreed for ablation. To explain in layman’s terms, when you do ablation you are trying
to damage or cauterize the tissue in the heart which is causing the irregular heartbeat.
And it really worked out well. With the ablation he completely improved back
to normal. Its been about five years since have did his ablation, and he has not had
his atrial fibrillation back again. I’ve been other hospitals. I know how they
treat you very mechanical, very not-warm, but its different with Lourdes and Dr. Akula.
It really is. We’re in a fifty five and above, so hospitals are very much in the norm over
there there is a lot of always something and we always get the I can’t believe you don’t
go over the bridge for your heart procedures. I can’t believe you don’t go over the bridge
and I feel like we don’t have to go over the bridge we have the best right here. Part of
it is, I’m comfortable with the doctors and the hospital and the convenience.
I know that she’s doing fine here, she isn’t forced to do traffic and wait to find a parking
lots. I have to come out of there by myself and
I never was concerned because I had the valet parking, if you’re late they tell someone
to walk to your car. It helps make you feel a little bit safer and not so scary.
I never got treated so wonderfully in my life. I’m very happy with Lourdes.
I consider Lourdes my heart hospital.
