I went in the E.R. Having a full blown heart attack. Within a couple hours Doctor Howard had implanted 2 stents in two separate nearly plugged arteries, had me in a recovery room and resting. No words can explain the professionalism and precision this man used to save my life. Thank you, what else can I say?
