Dr Thorp performed Cardiac Cath. And Stent insertion on me . He did an excellent job of talking to my daughter afterwards and explaining to her exactly what He had done and why . He also visited me in my room the next day to check on me and answer any questions I might have. He is not my regular cardiologist , but if I didn't have one I would love to have Dr Thorp.
