Patient Comments (1)
in Lawrence, MI. |
I was ill and seen by a different cardiologist who said there was nothing wrong with my heart after a stress test. I got worse and my family doctor sent me to Borgess for a heart cath. I had dilated cardiomyopathy. I was told that it could not be reversed. Then I met Dr. Robert LaPenna. He made no promises but said he thought he could help me. Under his care my very sick heart gradually improved to near normal. I thank him for my life and my husband's life too. He has cared for my husband.
