  • Experienced HCM Cardiologist in Detroit/Lansing MI?

    Can anyone recommend a cardiologist with HCM experience in the Detroit area? My niece was diagnosed with Exercise Induced Asthma. Our family has a history of HCM and at least one sudden death. She loves to play soccer. We want to ensure this is not actually mis-diagnosed HCM. She had an echo, which was reported as fine, but we know from out own experiences many cardiologist have little experience with HCM.

    I don't know of any. I think your best bet would be to call Lisa, phone number at the bottom of this page. She knows more doctors than all of us put together.


    Husband has HCM.
    3 kids - ages 23, 21, & 19. All presently clear of HCM.

      I have asked the same question of Lisa and I know she will recommend the Cleveland Clinic. A drive of somewhere around 3 hours would really be worth making when you are talking about one of the premiere facilities in the world.

      My sister lives in E.Lansing and I am hoping that she will finally decide to undergo routine screening. Dr. Ho, here in Boston, gave me 2 names to pass on to her because I know that the drive to Cleveland seems ridiculous to her. Dr. Ho seems to be familiar with them, I would imagine they must have some experience with HCM.

        The Cleveland Clinic is one of the top 3 or 4 in the country.
        3 hours away from one of the top HCM clinics?
        If at all possible, take the drive to Cleveland.
