I was totally against having a heart ablation. I told my cardiologist no for 3 years. He finally said, just go meet him, and if you don't want to do it you don't have to do it. I did go to meet him. I really liked him, bit was still very nervous and scared. He reassured me a couple times, before I decided to have the procedure. He never stopped encouraging me, while leaving the choice up to me. His patience with me was so reassuring. I had 110% confidence in him when I went into surgery. I couldn't be happier.
