What People Say About Dr. Bart Jenson, MD

My family spent 5 minutes with Dr Jenson before he approved my father for a TAVR procedure that went wrong due to doctor error that then led to my father being on the operating table for an excruciating 16 hours, brain dead and death 2 days later. The Cath Lab at Mercy Hospital was not set up properly for the emergency that occurred during my dads surgery which in turn led to some critical errors. Most disturbing, at no point since did we ever hear from or see Dr Jenson again to at least say ?
