Looking for a Northern CA specialist
I have an a/v block and I am now 100% paced by a Boston Scientific Advantio K063. I am also an active cyclist, hiker and periodic skiier.
Over the years, I have had a difficult time working with my doctors office and the Boston techs to get my PM settings optimized for cycling (my main sport). The doc's don't seem to have the time and the techs don't seem to have the experience.
Can anyone out there suggest the name of a SF Bay area cardiologist or other professional in this field who reallyr speciallizes or has a detailed understanding of pacemaker settings and athletic performance? I acknoweldge that a pacemaker will never be as good as my natural rythym setting but I would like to have more confidence that I have done everything possible.
with all of the athletic people out there w/ pacemakers nowadays, there must be someone who has dug into this.
