  • Cleveland Visit


    I have my yearly Cleveland visit on January 21st will good ol' Dr. Lever. I was just wondering if anyone on the board was going to be staring back at me in the waiting room of desk F15!

    It would be nice to meet another HCMer.

    I've been feeling well since Oct of 2002 when they removed my ICd and replaced it with a dual chamber Icd/pacer. I get my quarterly checks here, but feel obligated to see a specialist once a year..as long as insurance will cover most of the cost.

    Have a great weekend!
