Services: Transradial Catheterization; Heart Valve Surgery

More than a decade ago, a doctor detected a faint heart murmur in Clyde Neidhammer, now 67 years old, of Hyattsville. "He said not to worry at the moment, but down the road I might need surgery," Neidhammer says.

During a more recent doctor appointment for his wife with Sung Lee, MD, electrophysiologist at Washington Adventist Hospital, Neidhammer asked whether Dr. Lee would listen to his heart, telling him of the doctor’s cautionary warning 10 years ago.
