Patient Comments (2)
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.
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.
