    I would like to say Thank you to the people at AliveCor! This little device caught my A. Fib when Holter monitors & event Monitors couldn't! Sent a strip to my cardiologist showing A. Fib & now I am seeing an EP. She is vey impressed with the AliveCor & thinks that it is a great tool for patients to have.
    A very happy customer & it was on sale!
    thank you,

    Re: AliveCor

    I am also a big fan of this device. I had a second ablation to resolve continuing afib issues in December. Following the ablation, the doctor was prescribing a handheld device to monitor heart rhythym on a weekly basis. After the first ablation, I noticed this prescribed device was costing $700 a month, billed to insurance, but for which I pay the co-pay. After the second ablation I told them I would just use the alivecor and send them strips, costing me and my carrier nothing. The nurse said the alivecor strips were better than the prescribed device. If you have afib issues, this is a really useful device.

      My LG G3 phone isn't listed as being compatible, but it is a droid OS. Did you have to call and find out if your phone was compatible?

      Thanks!

        I have an iphone that was on their list, but I suspect they have a number you can call and verify your phone will work.

          I did call. The answer I got was that they only certify a limited number of phones but that most people find that it works with theirs. They have a 2 week money back guarantee, "just in case".
