Patient Advice to a Doctor?

By Adam Pick on September 6, 2019

As heart disease patients, we receive advice – from our friends, from our family and, most importantly, from our medical team.

But… What advice can patients give their doctors to help us through the surgical process?

I found the answer when I came across the Facebook post below.  After reading “Advice from a Patient”, I smiled and thought, “Wow! That is fantastic, authentic, true and completely accurate”.

So you know, this was posted by Dr. Sloane Guy, a robotic mitral valve specialist, who I have been fortunate to work with for several years.  How great!  A surgeon sharing this with other surgeons!

 

 

Great, right?

Keep on tickin!
