There are only a handfull of specialist on gp in
this country, thankfully I was able to
find one locally. The pacer cost about $41,000.00 and that needed to be paid in cash up frount before they would even touch me! It was not covered by insurance because it was "experimental", used in under 4,000 people a year. I went to the makers of the device and told them my story, they said they would donate it to me for free, IF my doctors would donate their time.
