Dr. Patel and nurse were great! I voiced concern that they may understand why I started keto diet. They both shared that they both used the diet and understand the efficacy. I also asked for CAC to establish a baseline and not necessarily for risk. I already know that I'm at least medium risk for heart event. I want to know a real number for the actual degree of calcification in my heart. Dr. Patel was very understanding and we discussed current research. I was also concerned about having CAC at metroplex hospital and he explained that it is S&W doctors and staff doing the work. I'm relieved. thank you for asking for feedback.
