    in BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI |
    Dr Black has been my son's cardilogist for over 8 years and performed open heart surgery when many would not touch him... Dr Black is innovative, and highly skilled, yet made sure I was realistic on my expectations. He spoke to me about longevity and alternative therapies and potential reversal. Not usual words in his field and I believe that made all the difference for my son. I'm from Michigan, but have followed him so my son could get the best care.

    Caring, skillful, brilliant, and accessible. He treated our child with severe Chad and she is doing extremely well. He got her into treatment when other beds cardiologists were doing nothing.
