I went to ER thinking I was in DKA from Type 1 Diabetes - turns out I had two heart attacks. Dr Hurtig was there immediately and made me feel at ease. I am lucky to be alive! I received the best care ever and he is always available to answer any questions I have. I am only 46 years old! I had never been told what heart attack symptoms would be. I have referred him to 5 of my friends who had been looking for new Cardiac Doctors! Highly Recommended.
