After Willis Hoskins was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, he traveled 5 ½ hours for treatment in Kansas City at The University of Kansas Health System
When Willis Hoskins met with Loren Berenbom, MD, at The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City, it was not his first appointment with a cardiologist. In fact, he had seen several cardiologists to treat his hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – a heart condition that causes the heart muscle to thicken and reduces blood flow to the body.
"When I was first diagnosed in my 20s, I wasn't quite sure how to take it," says Hoskins, now 35. "I still wanted to go on with my normal activities, like hanging out with my friends, having a few drinks and enjoying life. I didn't realize how serious a condition it was."
