Dear Valued Patient, (I knew this wasn't going anywhere good)
Harry K, MD has resigned his employment with Big Heart Institute Physicians, Inc. effective June 1, 2012 and may be contacted at the following website address: (his website address)
In order to ensure a smooth transition, we invite you to stay with Big Heart Institute Physicians as one of our other electrophysiology physicians will assume responsibility for Dr. K's patients moving forward.
Nothing is more important to your health than taking care of your heart- please call 404-555-5555 to schedule an appointment. We're here to help you - and your heart - stay healthy for years to come.
Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of OperationsWhat the Hell! When I got inside the house I logged on the the website to find out that Dr. K is going to be doing some intensive training for several months and it doesn't sound certain that he's coming back to Atlanta when he's done...Wow! What do I do now? I have an appointment with him at the end of the month to discuss the results of the month long ambulatory telemetry monitoring. The website said to call L, Dr. K's nurse if I had any questions. Yes, I have a question. What the Hell! Anyway I did speak with L today and she will be working with the other electrophysiologists, but she couldn't tell me which would be available on the day of my appointment. And she assured me that she'd have the doctor aware that they would need to look at the telemetry reports. This is disturbing on so many levels. I chose Dr. K because he's one of the best EP's in Atlanta. I don't even know who this new guy is. After all the controversy I've faced over my diagnosis with LQTS and the dissatisfaction that I've had with doctors who don't know me, I'm supposed to just be fine with the first guy that walks in the door? This just doesn't sound like a good plan to me.
