Being the kind of guy with a LVEF of 22% + or - a couple percent, I'm searching for a cardio guy or EP who can actually "read" an echo and have the device clinic nurse follow his instructions for an effective PM optimization.  Previous Doc. had this task aced ---- then he retired (AARRRRGH!).   I'm the current owner of a newly installed Medtronic "Claria MRI CRT-D" PM.

My quest is to locate a talented Doc. whose specialty is Echocardiography.  Slim pickens around here. I've been seen last year by Dr. Margaret Redfield - considered by many as one of the top cardiologists in the country - at Minnesota's Mayo Clinic. 

Anyone here have info regarding any of Mayo's E.P.'s?   In any event, I'll communicate with Dr. Redfield for her $0.02 regarding PM optimization.

I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
