Patient Comment 03/28/2017
I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and had the heart monitor for one month previous to this last appointment. I called and set-up the follow-up appointment myself in order to verbally get results. I had hoped we would go over the results in some detail but all that was said about it was, " yes the things you are experiencing are real and you are not imaging it". Secondly, he did not see anything life threatening. Continue as I have been and that was it.

It was my first time to see Dr. Rawitscher. I picked him out of 3 pages of doctors from my Primary doctor. He was very thorough and concerned. He knew just what tests to order and explained the follow up. His nurse and other technician were very good in explaining, too.

I think Dr Rawitscher gets behind schedule and tries his best to get back on schedule so sometimes he does not spend much time with me.
