What can I say about Dr. Gulkarov, he is an awesome awesome surgeon. He is thorough, focused and his patients well being is his number concern. He performed open heart surgery on my mother a few weeks ago and i can say he was amazing. She is recovering faster than i expected, Dr. Gulkarov assured us she would do well and I can say he told the truth. We trusted him with our mothers life, her life was literally placed in his hands and i can say he havent failed us, for that i am forever grateful
