He's awesome!!!!! Rg
Glendale, CA |
Dr. Hurwitz is an excellent doctor, a true doctor who saves lives. He saved my mother's life, performing a bypass surgery. We are very thankful to him and to all his crew.
He saived my dads life with 12cm aortic aneurysm thank you
in Glendale, CA |
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).
