Words are not enough to express our gratitude for another successful surgery on my husband Martin. Since 2004 when he had his first MI (full arrest) he saved his life with his expertise and care. Dr. Lopez has given us 15 wonderful years together and best of all, Martin got to experience being a grandpa which has been the most wonderful gift to us both. Even when Dr. Lopez gets tired, or woken up in the middle of the night, he saves and changes lives. We couldn't ask for a better kinder doctor!

Great physician, he saved my life!! Even through insurance and hospital logistics hurdles restricted treatment in the original hospital, he was able to transfer me right away and save my life. His private office is local, nearby and clean he is nearby to the hospitals. His new staff is polite,courteous and smile very pleasant and the bonus is they actually answer the phones which nowadays is rare.
