I was recommended to Dr Afflu by an acquaintance and scheduled an appointment to see him. His professionalism, care and attention to me was unparalleled. For the first time since I underwent my Aortic Valve replacement I feel cared for and safe in the care of my doctor. I highly recommend Dr Afflu!
