I had a triple bypass performed by Doctor Geiss on October 10th of last year and I want to tell you what an amazing job he did!! I was back to work the tail end of my 4th week of recovery and the payoff of having this done keeps multiplying. I feel better everyday that goes by and I can't remember the last time I felt this good. Maybe 30+ years ago. Well done Doctor Geiss!!!
