I would recommend Dr. Nahas to my children if they needed heart surgery for following reasons: - I am 62 years old and I have not seen Dr. Nahas for 16 years since he last performed my DBL bypass - After surgery I felt 100% normal / no after effects / pain; I was back to working 12 hrs./day in 1 week - I need an upcoming stress test for knee replacement Med clearance; I am so glad this Dr. is still there for me in case I need him; I would not consider any other Dr. - Most confident Dr. I've met
