My father was admitted into St. Elizabeth ER with major blockages to his heart, and it was complicated with advanced cancer. His odds were extremely low. Thanks to Dr. Locher (and his associate Dr. Christenson, he has beaten those odds and is with us today. He is phenomenal!

Dr. Jim Locher gave me a new heart. I cannot convey enough gratitude for his objectivity mixed with sincere encouragement and his own self revelations. Totally scared, but I gave him my trust. I am able to write these words ... now, today, thanks to his great skills!
