"Today I have no angina pain. I haven't used a nitroglycerin tablet for well over a month, and I'm exercising regularly and feeling great. "

"I had a heart attack in March of this year. After trying initially typical and traditional cardiac rehab therapies, that wasn't working out very well for me. Angina and shortness of breath kept me in the emergency room on several different occasions.
I found Legacy Heart Care through my cardiologist. When I came here, everything from the initial interview to my exit interview, I found the staff and people here extremely professional and very knowledgeable regarding cardiac rehabilitation. When I came to this office for my interview with the medical director they had to send me directly from here to the emergency room, because I was having an episode even at that moment.
When I tried to do my initial walk, I wasn't able to even walk six minutes; I could only walk a little over four minutes. At the end of my seven week period (and I was very diligent and made every single one of my treatments)—at the end of that time, I was not only able to walk six minutes…but I walked for a total of 1,950 feet!
Today I have no angina pain. I haven't used a nitroglycerin tablet for well over a month, and I'm exercising regularly and feeling great.
If I had any advice to anybody who is contemplating this therapy is that you relax, you listen to the people who are here on the staff, and you do your best to make every one of your treatments.
It's been a wonderful, wonderful experience for me and it's led me back to health, and I highly encourage anybody who qualifies for this treatment to seek it out. "
