in Houston, TX |
I had terribly high and dangerous high blood pressure several years ago & had a heart attack that required stents. Dr Milton Alvis did the stent procedure & then taught me to cut down on the bad sugar & heavy carb diet that I loved to eat. He took a lot of time to go thru my blood lab tests & heart scans to impress upon me the need to change my diet or I would be back again with major heart surgery, stroke or worse. After all his coaching & patience I finally got my blood pressure under control.
