      Dr. Link was my physician when I had an ICD put in on an emergency basis, and Dr. Estes, at NEMC is my cardiologist there. I have been with NEMC since 1987, and have had three procedures there. Great, great place, and a great and caring support staff as well as cardiologists. Good luck.

        I must say that the cardiologist at NEMC are AWESOME! I have Dr. Udelson, Maron, and Link. They did my ICD there and have changed alot for me. Last Friday I got a call from Dr. maron at 7:00 at night to see how the med change was going for me. I have never had a group of cardiologist that were so compassionate about my situation! I definately have Lisa to thank for that! It was worth the two flights from Florida to see these guys.
