As told by Dr. Michael Willhite
“It appeared that her God-given pacemaker was not working as it ought, and she probably needed a man-made one. We were able to capture that in the moment. I think that is one of the benefits of having this onsite facility - access and availability, and she felt welcome enough to come in.”
Spells that included instant fatigue and blood pressure issues brought this patient to her Activate clinic. A cardiac study and other labs led to adjusted meds, which helped. When the patient returned with a low heart rate, Dr. Willhite recommended a pacemaker. The patient received one within 24 hours and is in good health today. The availability and accessibility of the clinic were key in saving this patient’s life.
