After a pacemaker was installed, my health seemed to be getting worse, instead of improving.
After a pacemaker was installed, my health seemed to be getting worse, instead of improving. When I contacted Dr Merlino and told her I was sure something was wrong, she made time available for an immediate visit to her office. After an exam I was scheduled for an X-ray. Dr Merlino promptly followed up after the x-ray, and scheduled an appointment for evaluation by heart specialists. This revealed a large amount of fluid around my right lung. My husband and I believe that Dr Merlino's immediate follow-up saved my life. We can celebrate National Doctor's Day this year due to Dr Merlino's outstanding medical skills and quick actions. Thank you Dr Merlino!
