For more than two decades, Dr. Alan Schneider has been treating Wheaton resident Mark Olkon, 61, for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The condition, which results in an abnormally thickened heart muscle, causes shortness of breath and chest pain and may be associated with a variety of abnormal heart rhythms.
