Dr. Hurwitz was my dad’s surgeon back in 1997. Very compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, very professional with a great heart. He saved my dad’s life. My father is no longer around, he passed in 2008 due to pulmonary fibrosis. My mother and I are forever grateful to Dr. Hurwitz. (This was an emergency surgery)

My angiogram showed blockage so severe that my cardiologist called Dr. Hurwitz, who came to my recovery room that afternoon. Lakeside Med Group took three months to process all the authorizations. When I finally saw Dr. Hurwitz in his office, he reassured me that everything would be OK. After all, he will be cutting you open. His team saw to me and I will see him for the final follow-up. Triple bypass surgery went so well I was out of bed that night (late).
