I have an appointment with Dr. Richard Malamut at Crozer- Chester Medical Center in Chester, PA on 12/26 - the earliest I could get. Has anyone else been to see him? If so, is he good? (I hope!) I saw my own cardiologist yesterday - what a disappointment! All he suggested was adjusting my meds, but had nothing to offer for my current passing out episodes, except to try to be aware and get to "a safe place". Ha! I feel stuck at home right now because the feeling comes over me often, even when I'm driving. Any one have other tips about driving? I live by myself, so it's a necessity!

Thanks! Nancy

P.S. Gail, please check your e-mail! Where are you, girlfriend?!?
