About Me

Care Philosophy

Heart surgery, though being one of the most stressful and complicated medical fields, offers great rewards. Knowing that someone's loved one - mother, father, spouse, sibling - is still able to enjoy life because of your work is a feeling that cannot be matched any other way.

I first met Dr. Blucher when he arrived at my emergency room to discuss my By Pass surgery. Immediately I was put at ease with his confidence and positive attitude. I knew right away that I was in good hands. I am now 6 weeks out of surgery and doing great. The surgery could not have gone better. I highly recommend him as a surgeon and have already sung his praises to many friends and family. Thank you so much Doctor!!
