I think to me it is a no-brainer. I want to go where the best is going provide me with the best medical solution to my problem. Believe me, I love my cardiologist, I love my EP specialist who did my ablation, the atrial fibrillation history I have; but sometimes you have to just do the research for yourself and make a decision and it seems to be the best decision for us.
