How likely are you to recommend Dr. Atiga?

(Select your rating)
Great doc but very difficult to get an appointment with him, sometimes it is over 6 weeks to his "first available" slot. I had Afib and was cardioverted but it came back so Dr. Atiga recommended an Ablation. That has resulted in a heart rate in the low 50's so now he is talking a pacemaker. Think it may be time for a second opinion but an excellent Doc none the less.
