Didn't you use to post here before your ablation and as I recall you had a health food store? I am surprised hat no one has responded to your post, I never had an ablation so I can't help you with that. If you have been reading this forum then you know that most believe in Dr. Natile in Texas. Those that have had that ablation with Dr. Natile in Texas please respond to this post for Tom.

With a rate of 79-83 I wouldn't do anything. Are you sure you haven't reverted back to a normal rhythm?

If you want a consult with Dr. Natale, you do that by simply calling the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at the number found on their website and ask for an appointment with him. Expect to wait months for the appointment.

Hi Tom - I had a LAA ablation with Dr. Natale in Sept of 2013. I experienced flutter the next Spring, and went back for a "touch up" ablation. All has been good since...3.5 years and counting. He is excellent and my experience with the St David's medical center in Austin Texas was very good. I dealt with Shirley, one of his nurses, who was very helpful .

They will take good care of you. Good lucksmiling smiley ~ Barb
