Doctor Gorwit did a tremendous job analyzing my condition and getting a great surgeon to do my quadruple bypass
in Ramona, CA |
Dr Gorwit was able to see me for blood pressure clearance on my upcoming eye surgeries. There wasn't a lot of time, and I appreciate his willingness to squeeze me into his busy schedule, and take the time to explain his findings during my exam.
