I'm Dr. Patricia Pellikka, chair of the division of cardiovascular ultrasound and the director of the Mayo Clinic Echocardiography Laboratory. I'd like to hear from the patient themselves about what they think is going on and what their symptoms are. We can quickly and accurately recognize disorders that might be missed in other centers.

Medicine is wonderful, because there is always so much more to learn and explore. Patients and their families come here for healing and for hope. And I think Mayo Clinic does a superb job of providing both.
