The condition was interfering with his work activities and his hobbies—including gardening and pigeon racing—and he looked for answers at Einstein. This is his story in his own words.

“My doctor suggested ablation to treat my racing heart.

The staff at Einstein explains everything each step of the way. They tell you what your options are and what to expect. Everyone was kind and caring and always willing to answer my questions.

“All of my check-ups since the ablation have been good. I’ve had no problems and my visits to the doctor are getting more few and far between.

I can now handle my job (he is employed by an industrial real estate company) without any problems and am also able to return to gardening and my hobby of racing pigeons.

“At the last visit, my doctor even said that he thought I could start coming off my medications.”
