Dr River has been my husband's heart Dr for over 20 years. I don't know that my hubby would be alive today if not for Jose. He didn't give up as one Heart Dr.did. This other Dr. Said to take him home he was a dead man walking, (exact words). He has calmed me down in the nicest of ways when I was about to melt down myself. I pray he will stay put in NRV for a long time to come.
