I was extremely pleased with Dr. Wasserman, not only did he correct the leads on my pacemaker, that he did not install in the first place, but is soon as he did I no longer had pain that I've had for the previous two months. After a week I was feeling back to my normal energetic self. I am so pleased with Dr. Wasserman he's been a lot of time with me in the office for my check up explaining what happened And what I should do in the future. I have made another appointment with Dr. Wasserman [...]
