Patient Comments (1)
in Amherst, NH |
My cardiologist had me return to Dr. Buonanno after a TIA, ten years after an Amplatzer Device placement implanted by MGH's doctors, and Dr. Buonanno was part of the team of doctors who made that decision. At the time of my successful implant of the Amplatzer Device and discontinuance of TIA"s until this past February (10 years post prior ones), he instilled me with confidence as he responded to my concerns, and he re-inspired that confidence this past February.
