Just completed a periodic echocardiogram at Skyridge Hospital per direction of Dr Jantz. The staff at the hospital was very helpful and professional making me feel comfortable throughout the process. The follow up appointment with Dr Jantz was not rushed and informative as usual. I would recommend this team to anyone with cardiac health issues.

Dr. Jantz has carefully monitored my heart for many years. I started with Aurora/Denver Cardiology in 1984 after my first heart attack during a trip to North Dakota. Dr. Jantz has prescribed meds that in my opinion have kept me alive. Thank you from the top of my heart!
