Dr Flaherty was involved with the procedure and interacted with Dr Davidson when I had my TAVR surgery last Thursday. Anytime he came into the CCU , he was very informative and his bedside manner was excellent. Happy, smart, and remembered that my wife and I had just married 3 months prior, and entered into a pleasing conversation with us in that regard. We felt very special there. thank you very much
