Dr Carry listened to my concerns and fears. She started getting testing set up and prior to my leaving I was scheduled for an additional test the next morning. Dr Carry called me with results from the test even though they weren't back until late on a Friday evening. prescriptions were called in and instructions were received for a follow up EKG after the first couple of days of new meds. Dr Carry is #1 in my eyes!!!
