Dr. Mark Blitzer and his RN, Marisa, are an extraordinary team. Whip smart, professional and attentive to every detail, not to mention very pleasant to be with. Dr. Blitzer implanted a Medtronic Linq Monitor in my chest at Yale-New Haven Hospital-Cardiac Division. Amazing technology, performs perfectly. I can recommend Dr Blitzer without reservation.
