Dr. Andrew Frutkin, MD, most likely saved my wife from having a stroke, heart attack or worse. He used extremely good judgement in taking immediate action as to implanting a stent during a routine angioplasty procedure. The artery in view, had a 90% occlusion which could have led to disaster. In my view, Dr. Frutkin is a pure professional with the rare skills of getting ahead of the patient's problems. His patient pre and post-op briefings are outstanding! CDR Jerry K. Loeb, USN (Ret.)

Excellently trained and good judgment. I note he is basically conservative in managing this 75 year old physician's heart disease, which is wise. (If it ain't broke, don't fix it.) Communicates clearly and discusses concerns forthrightly. Highly recommended.

Dr. Frutkin saved my fathers life by performing heart surgery after he was brought in by EMTs post-cardiac arrest. He was later transferred to Keck USC in LA to be placed on ECMO machine for life support. The doctors at Keck stated that my fathers surgery performed the day before by doctor Frutkin was beautifully done. We are so thankful for doctor Frutkin and his work.

I have been a patient of Dr Frutkin, probably one of his first when he came to the Coacella Valley. He has been right on in handling my A -fib. He is confident and straight forward in his explanations. He has preformed 2 cardio versions the last few years on me. I trust him to continue to provide me with excellent care.
