June 12, 2013

I was very worried about my heart and Dr. Bray put my mind at ease, I am so grateful to him and his help in understanding why my heart does what it does. He also cleaned up my medication list in Epic? so I was not asked constantly about what medications I was on. there was some from 2004 on there, that I had not taken since 2004, and I was being asked constantly about them.
