  • Lisa, Looking to obtain HCM book

    I see you and Dr. Maron have a book about HCM, I went to Amazon.com (Borders.com), they are out of stock, is there another way for me to get a hold of this book, may help me in questioning the new doctor when we go to see him in a few weeks,
    Thank you

    You can buy the book directly from the HCMA ---we get a bigger slice of the proceeds than if it is bought anywhere else.

    It comes with a membership, if you get one.

    Please see the membership page for details.
