I can only say I hope Dr.Cameron isn't doing it.Before having this done be sure to ask for a sedative of some sort.
Some one else

I have had 5 heart caths and one was done by Dr Cameron. I saw no difference when he did it compared to the others.

Dr Cameron is the best interventional cardiologist in this town!! You couldn't be talking about him. He never has complications during caths---never! He has saved hundreds of peoples lives. Have no fear with him doing your cath.

Thanoli did mine without incident,both of them. The only thing bad about is is having to lay flat for a few hours. It really hurts my back to lay on my back. Otherwise it's no big deal. They will sedate you without asking for it. You wont care.

Either Thanoli or Cameron will do a great job and take care of you during this very painful procedure. Just lie back and let the sedative do it's job and put you trust in either of the fine doctors we have here in town.

There are a few bad doctors here in town but Thanoli or Cameron are not. Cameron is my heart doctor and has taken care of my mother as well.
We should be thankful we have one doctor of this caliber let alone two in this podunk town. None of them are perfect but I dont think anyone can give a factual statement saying either of them is not a competent doctor.
I am greatful we have Dr. Cameron here in town.
And you cant forget James in the office as well.
No Big Deal

I had my 1st one when I was almost 40 and have had several since..I am a female and they are not painful, hardly any worse than a sting. You do have to lay still for a while but not nearly as long as you did years ago. It has improved greatly. DR Cameron is great. Thannoli not as good, at least that is my personal opinion.

Well what is the scoop on Dr. Saleh, how does he rank in comparison?

My wife has unfortunately had a few of these done and a stent or two. Both Thanoli for the cath and Cameron for the stent did a wonderful job. While with any procedure there is some discomfort...drugs are wonderful!!! ;P
Seriously, just be careful moving right after the procedure...the lying still and the manipulation can make you weak and there may be some blood pressure problems for a couple of hours...

My mother has had some done in another state and even with her advanced age, heart problems, lung cancer survivor etc., did quite well and was back up and going within 48 hours.

The less anxious you can make yourself the less problems...I know that's easy to say and hard to do...I recommend and have had great luck with controlled breathing exercises.....push one nostril closed, breath in slowly and deeply through the other for a count of ten...pinch both closed...then exhale out the other nostril for a count of ten...don't force anything...repeat,switching nostrils for in and out until you relax...concentrate only on breathing and don't think about anything else...it really works for me in stress...once you have done it a while you can stop the nostril pinching and just breathe in slowly hold and then out and get the same results...the pinching helps you concentrate

Heart caths are no more painful than having an iv started or getting blood drawn. the worst part is lying still for a few hours and a mild soreness in the groin area for a day or two.
Cameron has saved several lives in my family alone. i work with him on a professional basis too and see no need for worry.
Dr Saleh is also a great dr. I wouldnt have a problem with any of our heart docs taking care of me or my family.
good luck with your procedure!

Thanks to all Dr. Cameron was wonderful in doing my heart cath. It wasn't to bad just the laying down afterward. Thanks to Dr. Cameron. And your right patient patient lets not forget James in the office. They are all wonderful.
