Today I was just informed that I had been quoted on About.com, Dr Glenn Gandelman is an excellent cardiologist working in Greenwich, Connecticut and in New York City. More importantly, he is the lead author of HeartAttacks.about.com.
From the article
"Who can help me obtain a thorough family history?
A basic family history is part of a complete physical examination and should be updated on a yearly basis. It's also a good idea to let your doctor know of any new illness that occurs in your family. In some cases more specialized genetic counseling is required. Your doctor may refer you to a geneticist in such cases. According to Dr. Steven Murphy, a physician with Helix Health of Connecticut, “there are specialists in medicine such as geneticists and genetic counselors who are trained to take and interpret family histories.”
