I saw Dr. Christy 3 years ago for severe heart pain. A stress test was done & results showed my heart needed help-immediately! Dr. Christy put in two stents and has been my Cardiologist since. He provides his professional opinion on a variety of options for healthcare, medicine etc. Dr. Christy spends the time needed to answer all questions/concerns. A friend rec. Dr. Christy & I have done the same. He is a private practitioner and I love that! BTW - he's much friendlier than picture shows :-)

Like most males I was in serious denial of a serious problem. Upon seeing Dr Christy I felt confident that his diagnosis and care would provide an answer to my problem. His angiogram found a much worse coronary artery blockage than anyone could have expected. I listened to his advice and for that I am thankful because had I not done anything then I certainly would have suffered heart muscle damage or death by now. Dr. Christy saved my life!

Bad things can happen to healthy people, even English Channel Swim Qualifiers, and Georges team saved my life when while training I collapsed from a arrhythmia, woke up from an induced coma later back to normal but now equipped with an ICD. Six months later I was back in sports this time kayaking around Manhattan Island for a good friend. I cannot give enough praise and support to him and the team he has, and it is a team. Maybe I'll go back to swim the English Channel yet? Don Macdonald

Dr. Christy saved my life in 2008. Dr. Christy cares about you as a patient as well as a person, and has a kind and friendly bedside manner. The Good Lord truly blessed me when Dr. Christy took care of me after I was rushed to the hospital. My stent procedure was scheduled for 1:30 in the afternoon the next day, but Dr. Christy called the hospital throughout the night to see how I was doing. He changed his schedule to care for me at 7:30 AM. He saved my life, and I am forever grateful to him.
