Dr. Leff's patient advocacy and rapid response to my warning attack, as a minimum, prevented future disabling attacks and possibly a fatal stroke.

On Sunday, July 28, 2013 I suffered a minor TIA and notified Dr. Leff the next day. Within 3 days I had a MRI, MRA with results and an appointment with Cardiologist, Dr. Mark Goldberg, the following Monday. The subsequent cardiac monitoring and diagnosis resulted in medication & pacemaker implant to remedy AFib & Chronotropic Incompetence. Dr. Leff's patient advocacy and rapid response to my warning attack, as a minimum, prevented future disabling attacks and possibly a fatal stroke.
