Ordered angiogram after 15 minute visit. Straight to angiogram. Said wouldnt put stent in anything under 70 percent blockage. Cut inside lining of artery intervening with 60% blockage. Caused spiral dissection. Killed me dead on table. Had to be brought back to life twice. Havent heard from or seen him since. Now i have PVC’s the rest of my life and 4 stents. New cardiologist saw video Said no blockage. Procedure unnecessary. Breathing issue was allegies. Left arm pain was pinched nerve in neck

Great guy! I had some strange persistent symptoms. He saw me and immediately sent me through several diagnostic procedures. He followed up personally at the end of a long day of tests. He is very easy to talk to and I can tell by his demeanor he cares about his patients. I can absoulty recommend him!
