We were out of town guests in Reno on Easter Sunday when we encountered an ER situation. Dr. Carrea was the cardiologist at St. Mary's Hosp who assisted us and performed the necessary procedure. I cannot speak highly enough of him. He was calming, informative, sensitive, and extremely helpful and professional. He carefully explained all options, his opinion, the procedure, and follow up instructions for when we got home. He even provided cell phone follow up assistance. He was fantastic!
