I want to say a huge thank you to Dr. Finlay. His work is an art in itself. I've been suffering from multiple tachycardia and arrhythmia episodes that increased significantly during the last 6 months. The doctors put me on medications that made me tremendously sleepy and low on energy. During our first consultation, Dr. Finlay checked all the data and confirmed that he would be ready to perform an ablation procedure in my case. I had to fly in a short period of time with my grandkids, and Dr. Finlay and his team (special thanks to Kitti) managed to arrange the procedure in a very short time. Straight after the procedure, Dr. Finlay canceled all the medications that I had taken for my heart rhythm. The same day, I went home. It's been nearly two months now since the procedure, and I need to say I haven't had a single episode since. It's a miracle. Thank you very much. And God bless you in your daily magical work. Kind wishes, Irina H.
