    Dr. Aboutanos saved my husbands life. He recognized a critical bleed when other doctors failed to diagnose and got him to emergency surgery just in time. While he saves lives everyday, I will be forever grateful that he did what he did for our family. Without him, my life and the lives of my young children would be very different today.
