What People Say About Dr. Bruce Brent, MD
Reply
My husband had a heart attack at the age of 38. Dr. Brent was the first to treat him in the ER. According to 3 other top cardiologists across the country the actions Dr. Brent took on that fateful day prevented considerable permanent damage to my husband’s heart. My husband has unusually small arteries and veins and the fact that Dr. Brent is able to perform angiograms and interventions over the years is testament to his incredible skill. Particularly as the other doctors couldn’t even attempt

I've been under his care since mid-2001 when I was diagnosed w Cardiomopathy so I have total trust in him. Very straighforward but usually you're in and out in 30 minutes, including the BP and weight check w the nurse assistant. I just wish he would have more time to explain and answer questions.
