    Patient Comments (2)
    in Midway, KY |
    12 years ago I suffered two TIA's. One in Iraq and one when I came home. It was discovered that I needed a PFO closure. I can tell you without a doubt that I had the best doctor. Dr. Smalling put an Amplatzer PFO Occluder in my heart. I went back last year for a 10 year checkup, a little late, here in KY. Everything was great. Dr. Smalling tells you like he sees it but also cares tremendously. I highly recommend.

    He and his staff provided me great care during my stay in hospital during my triple by pass surgery. Daily visits and monitoring of my progress was very helpful.
