Patient Comments (1)
in Kalispell, MT |
Dr Fortenberry is by far the most experienced vascular surgeon that Has ever treated me. I was diagnosed with PAD ten years ago, And I sustained a cut on my heal which within a couple of weeks turned into a sore bigger then a half dollar, It was so painful that I couldn't cover my foot with a sheet, I was told that I had a fifty fifty chance of having my foot amputated, That's when Dr Fortenberry went into action. He put a stent into my leg, Allowing oxygen to my extremities, And saved my leg!
