Too bad that Dr. Kawasaki is leaving Advocate

He addressed all my questions and concerns. Doc is great at doing what he does. I wouldn't hesitate to avail myself of his services, in the future. But I hope that I won't require them.

Several inquiries were were regarding information that I should have been provided prior to the Ablation procedure, or at least while recovering in the hospital. I should have been given a guideline of what to expect during the initial 3-4 weeks of recovery. Naturally, my situation did not fit the norm, but knowing, that the frequency and duration of my episodes, were to be expected, would have erased major concerns and anxiety.
