Dr Lopez was my Cardiologist at St Alphonsus Hospital in Boise . I could not have hoped for a more careing , concerned Doctor to get me thru a mild heart attack and placement of a stent to resolve a blocked artery . Dr Lopez impressed me with his thoughtful approach to managing my recovery and his patience with me as a patient . i really looked forward to visits with him and really like him as a person . Unhappily for me he has moved on to a new Position with Amgen in California
