  • Dr. Henderson from Toronto now in Vancouver HCM Specialist??


    I asked my cardiologist today about seeing an HCM specialist. I asked about Dr. Wigle. He told my that the doctor who did my Cardiac / Angiogram (Dr. Henderson) actually worked with Dr. Wigle in Toronto and that Dr. Henderson was very qualified with HCM. Has anyone ever heard of Dr. Henderson? I have heard from another doctor in Toronto that Dr. Henderson is very good. Is he considered an HCM Specialist. He did seem knowledgeable.

    I am not sure, Wigle and Toronto is where the majority of Canadians go, I am not sure what this Dr's background is and how many patients he has seen. I am going to have to make a few phone calls and I will get back to you when I learn something.
