I left feeling somewhat like we just didn't know if something was wrong. I don't know why my son had palpitations but nor did the doctor. he made reasonable suggestions but it still seemed like there wasn't anything to know. as a parent it's frustrating but I am sure the doctor is very knowledgeable.
