    [Indy needs HCM expert]

    Lisa,

    Since I have been reading/posting the last couple of months, I believe 4 other Indiana people have posted. Since few people with these problems actually find and post, my guess is are many more local HCMers and we need help. I know 2 hospitals both highly rated that offer ablation and myectomies, however they have done very few and I am not sure how well. We need to get an expert here in Indy. We are in an explosion of Cardiac Hospitals. The city is controlled by 4 hospital groups. One is a corporation that combined the University Hospital, the Children's hospital, and a large local hospital. They have combined all there resources to form a new Cardiac Center on their main campus. The other 3 groups are all building brand new Cardiac only hospitals. They are competing against each other to be first. I would think being an expert in one area no one else has would be fantastic. Lisa I want to nominate 2 doctors for you to send packages to please. The first is my local cardiologist who I know has other HCM patients and is fairly knowledgable. The second is the surgeon who would have done the myectomy locally but told the HMO to send me to Cleveland.

    JUST READ YOUR EMAIL ON INDY. COULDN'T AGREE WITH YOU MORE. I LIVE IN ANDERSON AND IT'S HOSPITALS ARE A LOT WORSE. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH DR. ELSNER OF THE CARE GROUP ON SEPT. 3. HE WILL BE REGULAR CARDIOLOGIST WITH DR. LEVER IN CLEVELAND SEEING ME ONCE A YEAR FOR CONSULTS AND UPDATED TESTING. HOPE HE IS AS GOOD AS DR. YOU RECOMMENDED. IF I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE, I'LL BE SURE TO ASK ABOUT SWITCHING.
