Ratings and Reviews
What a great app! It takes a lot of the worry and mystery out of the procedure, explaining in non-medical terms what an angiogram is for, what to expect from the routine examination and how to keep all the info in one place for easy reference. Although I've now had my angiogram, I find I often refer back to the app to remind me of important post treatment points etc. Very reassuring!
