Please join Paul Perlman and his discussion group "All Things Myectomy with Paul".  Paul is a retired lawyer from Orchard Park, NY.  He was diagnosed with HCM in 2013 at the Cleveland Clinic, and received an ICD later that year.  His symptoms became more pronounced over the next three years and he had a myectomy in 2016.
Since Paul retired in 2017, he has taught at a local college, and served on his college’s Foundation Board. For 25 years before he was diagnosed, he was a general aviation pilot.
Being an online support group leader is important to Paul because one of the greatest sources of anxiety to people living with HCM is fear of the unknown.  He believes that anxiety can be reduced by sharing our questions and experiences.
