HORRIBLE: This Dr. is part of the medical industrial complex.
My 90 y.o. mom had a "mild" heart attack and was 100% better the next day.
SADLY for her, Dr. Stechel was on duty (NS Hospital) and claimed she needed Angioplasty and stent.
In our conversation he denied EVIDENCED-BASED research that showed no benefit to surgery over drugs for a patient like my mom existed.
READ THE FACTS (2019):
A large, international study led by Stanford and New York University found that invasive procedures are no better than medications and lifestyle advice at treating heart disease that's severe but stable.
She survived the Angiplasty procedure and it was determined NO STENT NECESSARY!
These Dr.s need a dose of IMPLEMENTATION SCIENCE. Stop relying on 30 year old info...rely on EVIDENCE BASED MEDICINE!!!
Don't know if Docs like Stechel are stubborn old school or if there is an overwhelming profit motive. Either way, WATCH OUT!
