    [HCM on Puget Sound]

    Does anyone know of any HCM specialists in the Seattle area? My cardiologist, Dennis Enomoto, told me I am one of three patients with HCM in his practice. He has told me nothing that runs counter to anything that I have heard in this forum and I like him personally, but an opinion from a specialist seems appropriate. I feel much better since Dr. Enomoto made the HCM diagnosis and put me on Verapamil, but better is not always best. I have lost 90 lbs. with portion control and moderate exercise. I hate to whine, but I still have a lot less energy than I would like and I find myself short of breath frequently. Any suggestions? Marv

    Dear Marv,

    Please call the HCMA at 973-983-7429 to find out the best specialist for you.

    Fatigue is a very common situation for most of us and pretty hard to get rid of since some of the drugs make you tired too. However, you are right to want to see a specialist and good doctors are very happy to have an expert on your team.

    take care,

    Hi Marv,

    I am a Seattle Area HCM person. Believe me, it is difficult to find a good specialist in this area. I spoke with Lisa earlier and didn't really get any good leads, but I ended up seeing Dr. Jeanne Poole at U of W. They have been working really hard to help me with my fatigue and they seem to have a lot of knowledge, although they are not connected to all of the great doctors out east (Dr. Maron, Dr. Nishimura). I'd love to here how your search turns out! It's nice to have someone else on this coastline!
