Patient Comments (1)
in Larkspur, CA |
One of the reasons I'm alive today is because of Dr. Anastassiou's expertise. I underwent open chest surgery in late December '15 and was lucky enough to have Dr. Anastassiou assigned to my case. His patient interaction demonstrates a high degree of caring and empathy. His surgical skills are of the highest quality. His post surgical follow up is welcoming and explanative. Emergency surgery is never pleasant, but anyone fortunate to have Dr Anastassiou holding the scalpel is lucky.
