My mom is a current patient of Dr. Lirtzman. I can't say enough good about him. He is patient and informative, as well as, an amazing surgeon. He performed a triple bypass and a valve replacement on her. She also has severe C.O.P.D. She came through surgery much better than any of us expected. Dr. Lirtzman, after having performed surgery for almost 6hrs came and spoke to my family without one hint of needing to hurry out. He is a brilliant surgeon with a fantastic bedside manner!
