Patient Comments (1)
Memphis, TN |
During my uncle’s cardio ablation, Van Whye poked a hole in his aorta causing him multiple complications: bypass surgery, cardiac tamponade, stroke and near death. This should have never happened! Van Whye is too eager to perform procedures which can be treated with medication, DOES NOT discuss the risks and I noticed his hands have a tremor. Van Whye may have been a good doctor at one time, but he should retire from performing procedures. If you need a cardiologist -- go to Stern Cardiology.
