Patient Story

Natalie Herndon, Heart Defect Patient

A solution is found at last.

For years, Natalie Herndon felt her heartbeat racing extremely fast. Many doctors dismissed the University of South Carolina student's symptoms as anxiety. But at Lexington Medical Center, doctors discovered something wrong with Natalie's heart—and they knew just how to fix it.

Natalie was born with an extra electrical connection in the heart that allowed the signal to move faster than usual. She underwent a cardiac ablation that stopped the abnormal heart rhythm in its tracks.

Natalie says, "I've been to a lot of doctors and a lot of hospitals, and I have never felt more at peace than I have at Lexington Medical Center."
