Im thinking about having an EP study and possible ablation from Dr. Timothy Doyle in Houston, TX.  How can I find out if he is good? Do you know if he is good? Please Help.  My original poster name was "cookienkikin"

Thank you for optimism.  I told a friend I was considering ablation and wanted to hear of the supposed 90% success rate and was googling to find stories but instead found multiple ablations, continuing need for medication, increased heart symptoms and decreased quality of life.  My fiend suggested stop googling!  And it is true that if all goes well, people are much less inclined to report it or read the medhelp forum (although it's swell to help each other out).  I'm traveling to see a good cardiologist and will listen to what he says, and come with questions I continue to have, and take it from there.  Best wishes to you.

Thanks for your response.  I have been babysitting and wasn't able to log in.  I'm happy you are doing okay.  I'm happy to hear of your successful ablation.  I talked with my family physician and she's had good results with the 10 or so patients she knows who underwent the procedure.  Still, I'm feeling more comfortable with the devil I know, so to speak, than that I don't.  I'm going for a consultation in a couple weeks, which will give me more information, and can still make my decision afterward.  Ablation could be a great thing--I guess that's what I'd be betting on!.  Take care.

Hi and thank you for your comment.  Could you please tell me where you live and what doctor was trained at that time in the mini maze procedure because they seem very few and far between.  Was that in Phila?  I didn't know any cardo in Phil offered this new laproscopic mini maze? Thanks, Tjoyce

Just a quick note to say hi!My symptoms were aching all over, especially the upper back, chest and ribs, also the arms, mainly the elbow. The doc presses certain "points" and if 11 out of 18 hurt, then they say you have Fibro, well, I hurt in 17!! Some days are better than others and if I sit in a hot bath or use a hot pad, I am not too bad. On cold days like today when it is windy, it really acts up.
Hugs

Thank you so very much for your response.  I really appreciate it.  Do you feel any anxiety when the monitor self records?  I think I anxiety causes me to feel chest pain and other things.  I have not heard anything from my md so thanks for the reassurance.  My cardio said that based on the event monitor findings he may refer me to an EP.  Is that invasive?  Thanks again!  Tracy

The Holter results were good. It said I only had 13 single PAC's no PVC's and my average heart rate was 78.  I had a couple of tachycardia episodes also, but, all in all, it was great. :)

I am using Davis Callans.  Apparently he has done over 500 WPW specific ablations and has had multiple success after just one ablation.  I am just so nervous about all this risks.  Would you mind calling me over the weekend if possible.  I would love to just hear the details because it is the unknown stuff that scares me the most.  My name is Cris and my email is ***@**** and then I will give you my number.  thanks so much!
