don't want to be a bother

don't want to be a bother

Just wanted to ask this experienced group for some advice.
I met with Dr. Natale and Dr. DiBiase 6 weeks ago to discuss ablation.
I am 44, paroxysmal afib, diagnosed 2 years ago. Highly symptomatic. Episodes 1-2 week, converting on my own.
Dr. Natale, accompanied by Dr. DiBiase agreed to do the procedure at Montefiore Hospital in New York when Dr. Natale travels back here.
Since then Ive had heart sonogram and wore a monitor for 2 weeks that I sent off back to the hospital.
Do I now wait for someone to call me to schedule the date or do I call them?
I don't want to bother them. They are both very busy doctors.
Not sure what the protocol is.


Thank you,

Ilona

And they both have plentiful staff to field phone calls and questions. Go ahead and call.

Yup, call. That's what the staff gets paid to handle.

That's the Dr's problem. Either you or your Insurance will be paying tens of thousands of Dollars for this Ablation.
