Re: Need help finding doc in Southern NJ or Philadelphia



Hello, Right about now I'm in the same boat as you.

I live in Philly. Yesterday my daughter had her fourth episode of VVS. Ambulance, and the whole bit.

I had taken her to a cardiologist at CHOP. Her primary has kind of dismissed it as well as the experts although they ran tests.

I'm not sure if you are an adult or young. The ER made her an appointment at Saint Christophers. It's in a very bad neighborhood, but supposed to be one of the best hospitals in the nation for kids.

If I find out anything more I will let you know. This thing is just too frightening.
