Special Thank You to Dr. Gaba, who made a special trip on his day off, to pop over to see me so I would not need to go to the ER. Thanks for the prompt response and sincere concern for my health.

I was already under the influence of sedatives and my cardiologist sought Dr. GABA to implant my very difficult stents, which he dropped everything and did in a heartbeat. I didn't get to speak to him as he was very busy but this man saved my life. The rest of the criteria here wasn't applicable as I scheduled through my own Dr.
