    I'm an U.S.A.F. spouse so we move every few years. I was lucky to have Johns Hopkins close enough to my spouse's last two assignments. So after five years at Johns Hopkins we now live in Denver area again. I had appointments with the EP clinic which went fine, then with Dr. William H. Sauer my EP Cardiologist. He was great (I had seen him before). I then met with Dr. Ernesto Salcedo who sees all the HOCM patients at UCH. They agreed and wanted to continue forward with JHU treatment plan. I was impressed with my care. UCH was were I was first diagnosed back in 2005 after my brother was diagnosed at UAB in Birmingham, AL in 2005 I would also like to say that Alex was awesome with getting my appointments scheduled. She was great.
    Currently under the care of the Physicians at University of Colorado Hospital.
