I have been a patient of Dr Carstens since January 2007 when he was with the Nebraska Heart Institute. He and the heart surgeon literally saved my life. He is by far the best medical professional I have ever dealt with. He takes the time to actually listen to patients and explains things thoroughly, but without excessive techno-babble.
