    I am alive. 14 years ago Dr. Laks performed mitral valve repair on me that saved my life. Thank you sir. Awesome job. Awesome man.
    in Burbank, CA |
    Dr. Laks operated on me on 1/15/1992 to repair my mitral valve. I spoke to other doctors about my situation but was so impressed with Dr. Laks that I chose him to do the surgery. Not only is he one of a kind on the whole planet as a doctor, he is a wonderful person! God Bless Dr. Laks for his work in helping this planet! Tom Barber
