I went into my local ER with AFIB. My heart specialist is over 140 miles away and has told me to go to a ER when this happens. Most people can take meds for this condition. I have an enlarged aorta, two stents and a substantial heart murmur. I told him I came in to be safe and that I needed to be sent to my heart specialists hospital or at least call him. The ER doctor refused to call my specialist twice and then sent me home without treatment. At the same hospital last summer another ER doctor sent me by ambulance to my specialists hospital during an AFIB attack. That doctor refused to let me go in my POV stating it was too dangerous not to go in a ambulance. I'm 55 years old and a college graduate, I so still have a little sense.
