My mom passed away at 79 years old 3 months after having his heart surgery. She was very ill but I will always question if my mom should have had this surgery at this time of her life.

My father and his brother died of atherosclerosis in their early 40's. I started having symptoms in my mid 40's and found myself getting an angioplasty when I was 46. Dr Ptasnik became my cardiologist then - and subsequently unclogged all three major coronary arteries in the following few years. He put me on a drug regimen which I've followed to this day. In August I turned 70 and still lead a pretty active life. There's no question that Dr Ptasnik extended my life by another 30 years plus...

Dr. Ptasnik, has been my Cardiologist for almost 20 years. He has been, not only my doctor, but to an extent, a friend. Our relationship is not only one of professionalism , but he has made this relationship one of trust and friendship. I would recommend Dr. Ptasnik, to anybody and everybody. He is a true professional as well as an awesome human being. I trust him with my life. May God bless Dr. Ptasnik !

I would highly recommend Dr. Ptasnik. He placed heart stents in my 90 year old Father in law and he is doing great. He is very professional, personable and easy to speak with. He spends quality time during the office visits and answers all our questions.
