    I am anxious about irregular heart beats and had worn a heart monitor the previous weeks. The doctor said it reflected several burst of fast heart rate but they didnt last long so not to worry. But I do worry as I dont know when it might happen again.

    I saw the provider for an uncomfortable reason and the care provided by him went above and beyond my expectations of compassionate care. He listened expressed sympathies for my situation and allowed me participation in making medical decisions.
