in Riverview, FL |
Dr. Bogar performed a bilateral lung transplant on me that saved my life. She was wonderful before and after the procedure explaining what was going to happen and then how my body was responding afterwards. Dr. Bogar is very personable...she put me at ease going into this major surgery. She is extremely skilled and professional. I thank God for Dr. Bogar.

She quite simply saved my life. I had undamaged heart muscle but unbeknownst to others major artery issues. Dr. Linda Bogar came to the rescue with timely, precise and proven information. I was introduced to her through the wonderful cardio offices of Dr. Cleve Francis. He told me Dr. Bogar is as good as they come and is super talented but also easy to talk to. She is the absolute best. If you are reading this and in need of a cardio surgeon then do yourself a life preserving favor!
