    The doctor allowed me to call my wife (who could not attend in person) so she could listen in. He also expressed his apology for UCSF regarding the confusion about the echocardiogram explaining the people answering the phones outside the clinic may have thought I meant the ekg. He went to ask his team if they could fit me in same day and they agreed. It was very nice considering the distance I need to travel. I appreciated the effort.

    In the after visit summary there were inaccuracies as far as family history. I told him my brother and father had heart attacks and bypass surgery
