It is scary enough to have a pacemaker Put in ,but you will have no worries Dr.Blitzer is a very competent surgeon. Ht is easy to find at St. Raphels Hospital, go past the hospital and thru the light the parking is in plain sight.Takt the ticket and go across the street to the front of the building. You are there

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.

Excellent doctor who takes the time to explain his diagnosis, treatment strategy and prognosis. He keeps my heart beating...if my heart stops beating I may consider another doctor but until then I will stick with Dr. Blitzer.
