What People Say About Dr. Louis Lanza, MD
Reply
Dear Dr, Lanza - it is 4 years ago today that you saved my mothers life. She was against all odds every other place told us so - she could literally die at any moment with her severe aortic stenosis. I am so grateful to have her hear on this earth for 4 more years thus far - your expertise, and strong encouragement, and every time she was unsure about the surgery, you met with her took the time each time (which was frequent in her case) was more than expected. Thank you for saving her life!
