    Given the sudden and unexpected referrals to see Dr. DeFranco, I was most impressed his staff & Dr."s knowledge of my cardio-history, the willingness to answer my questions and concerns about the planned/possible treatments in clear and concise language relieved my worst worries to a "let's do it!" plan of treatment. I have mentioned him and his staff to several friends and fellow cardio-patients as an outstanding medical provider they should consider for their treatment.
