  • Going to UCLA on Tuesday to HCM Dept.

    Diagnosed in December, but my current cardiologist cannot understand that my symptoms have increased since I first felt them in August. I will be seeing Dr. DePasquale on Tuesaday. Looking forward to getting answers and clarity. What a long, stressful process to find a Dr. that understands HCM.

    Uh Huh. Took me years to get the right diagnosis. Turns out all along I lived blocks from leading expert in HCM at St. Lukes in New York. Just a change in insurance lined me up with a primary care physician than listened more than others and had the clue to send me to the right specialist.

    Good luck on Tuesday!

      Glad you're seeing a specialist, TillMe.

      When you get a chance, please introduce yourself on the "Hello! My name is . . ." forum.
