 Allis worry free after a-fib procedure

Patient Name:

Hunting for his rhythm

Patient Name: Dirk Lammert

Dirk Lammert just wanted someone to give him some answers. He first noticed something wasn’t right in 2000, when his heart felt as though it was beating out of rhythm. For the next 10 years, he saw several different doctors, none of whom could tell him what he had.

It wasn’t until 2010 that Lammert knew he had to see another doctor and get his heart checked out. The moment of truth occurred when Lammert was by his wife’s side after she had a
mountain bike accident. As he watched the ambulance crew care for his wife, Lammert’s heart felt like it was going to beat out of his chest.
