Patient Comments (1)
in Redding, ca. |
I had triple bypass surgery performed by Dr. Pottmeyer two years ago. He used the beating heart technique. and if I had not had complications it would have been a walk in the park. You see I have an allergic reaction to heparin which causes massive amounts of blood clots to form. This condition was unknown. DR.. Pottmeyer did a terrific job as did the intensive care physician, DR.. Strouv. If it were not for these two men, I would be very dead today. I can't say enough nice things about DR. Pot
