Very good meeting. During the consult Dr. Wolfe gave me a very clear picture of what it would take to replace both the valve and the aorta. I was also suprised to find that his expectation is that he would complete the process without the need for additional blood.
While Dr. Wolfe comes very highly recommended, after meeting him, I can understand why. The level of comfort he shows in his knowledge really helps me be at ease. He also stated that he believes I have plenty of time to complete my research and meet the other surgeons. He has set the bar very high.
I'm looking forward to my next consult on the 30th.
Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be meeting with the first of three surgeons. This one is Dr. Alan Wolfe at the North East Georgia Medical Center.
Much of my family is in the medical profession which has been very nice. All three surgeons I'm meeting have been referred by highly respected cardiologists that have given the referral as "This is who I'd let cut on my chest."
