I had terribly high and dangerous high blood pressure several years ago & had a heart attack that required stents.

I am so happy for Mr. Gavlick. For many years he had difficulty understanding that many issues, widely marked (which he wanted to believe) were both (1) not true and (b) powerfully undermining his better interests for quality of life and survival. While, as he states, I did perform balloon angioplasty, one with a stent, one without (vessel too small), these services (as always) are only expensive short-term treatments for symptoms, not the primary drivers of artery disease, body wide.

Very informative and answers all questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alvis to anyone. Office is always clean and the staff is very friendly.
