Providence R.I |
My Father was admitted to The Miriam Hospital for a stent procedure & it was discovered that he needed to have open heart bypass surgery at eighty years of age. He does not do good with invasive surgery & anesthesia, so I told the nurses at Miriam that I wanted to take him to Mass General. Instead I trusted them when they told me that we have one of the best Cardiovascular Surgeons right here at R.I Hospital. Dr Fingleton & his team saved my fathers life & could not come more highly recommended!
