I was looking at the HCM specialty centers and noticed there was one in San Antonio. I never knew that! I live a lot closer to San Antonio than to the Mayo in Rochester. Has anyone been there? How does it compare to the Mayo Clinic?

Hello! We've not been there before, so I apologize for not being able to answer, but my husband has an appointment with Dr. Feldman on August 4th and I'd be interested to hear anyone who has seen him as well!

Hi Marki! Where is Dr. Feldman located? Is he in San Antonio? Are you taking your son too? Best of luck!

Hi!! Ok - we just got done (today) with a heart cath for my husband - local cardio felt it would be an appropriate test for him, though no blockages were found - we're told his "conduction" system isn't working as well as it should. I'm assuming this means "I'm just a cardio and I'm not entirely sure how to help you." So - the original appointment was August 4th, but we got a call yesterday that it was being pushed back to August 11th, but yes, it's with Dr. Feldman and he's in San Antonio. :)
We also found out today that Zak (son) has an appointment with Dr. Towbin at Texas Childrens Hospital in Houston, TX on July 17th! YAY! :)
Good luck - and let me know what's going on!!
