I was having some obvious issues yet the tests were not showing them. Dr Laufer paid attention, close attention! Did and angioplasty to see what was wrong, found it and fixed it...but after a few weeks I knew there was still an issue... again, tests and paying attention, and got me back in and fixed me. Saved my life, not once, but twice. There was no way he could have foreseen what happened after the first procedure. I have all the confidence in the world in him/staff and his surgical skills.
