I have been a patient of Dr. Prisco's since I first became sick in 1997. I had blood clots in my lungs, outside the main vein into my heart and both arteries of my heart. The clots in my lungs eventually caused me to have Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Since 1997 Dr. Prisco has saved my life on three different occasions. His medical knowledge and dedication are the reasons i am alive today.
