Patient Comments (1)
in Ogdensburg, NY |
After my heart stopped , and I was revived. I was transferred to St. Joseph's in Syracuse. Dr. Simons was my doctor who treated me. After 5 days in St. Joseph's I was released and went home. Three months later my new doctor in Ogdensburg did a stress test. She told me after the test it looked ok to her. She sent it to Dr. Simon, After he seen it, I got a call from him. I had some serious problems. He found 4 blockages after doing a Heart Cath., and scheduled me for surgery with Dr. Lutz
