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....more
