Dr. KARAVAN is an outstanding Cardiologist. He has identified and monitoried my cardio weaknesses throught the years, and when it came time to repair those weaknesses, he reacted swiftly for a very successful repair. If you are religious and believe in faith like I do. Then Dr. KARAVAN is one of God's angels. Because of Dr. KARAVAN my healthy lifestyle would not exist without his astonishing work, and his knowledge and skills as a cardiologist. I am blessed to have to have as my cardiologist.
