Everything went extremely well and she was very pleased with Dr. Wilson and his staff. I also have POA (Health Matters) effective 9/11/18. I am 71 yrs. old and a congestive heart failure survivor and former LVAD patient. LVAD removed in May, 2011. I did not need a heart transplant after 3 yrs. with LVAD.
