One year ago today on April 20th 2016 Dr. Karavas performed four bypasses and a valve repair on me. He did a wonderful job and I cannot thank him enough. His skills are quite special and truly give the giift of life to people. Besides being a superb surgeon, his sense of compassion and humility is quiet evident. You could not ask for a finer surgeon for your care! _Peter Dee
