Joan Peter, 84, leads an active lifestyle. Poker is her game of choice. After suddenly losing consciousness, Joan's primary care doctor referred her to St. Luke's cardiologist Dr. Arjinder Sethi.
Dr. Sethi evaluated Joan's complex medical history which includes cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and mitral valve disorder. He made modifications to Joan's extensive medication list, got her a defibrillator implantation and recommended a low calorie / low sodium diet.
Today, Joan's lightheadedness episodes are gone, her blood pressure and cholesterol are under control, and she feels she's been dealt a whole new hand. Joan is back in the game again.
