I was a patient of Dr. Boucher in 1995 - had an AVR....Dr. Boucher visited me at least twice daily during my hospital stay. I was totally satisfied with my care, I am now looking to have a redo surgery to repair a thoracic aortic aneurysm...I was so glad to see that Dr. Boucher is still in practice. I plan to contact him with regards to his recommendation of a cardiothoracic surgeon to perform this redo....My original surgeon (who was recommended by Dr. Boucher) has since passed away.
