Great Surgeon. Very friendly and thorough. He was able and willing to adjust his schedule to get me in as soon as he could. He is very professional , he listened attentively and took his time to explain everything in detail. I wouldn’t want anyone else to do my next cardiovascular surgery.

I'm a 75 years old female with high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. He placed a mesh on my right leg. I didn't feel anything during the procedure I thought that was the norm. My cardiologist suggested other surgeon, he was closer to my home so I switch. This procedure was a torture I was awake during procedure and it hurt and left the operating room with an IV incerted to my artery for a nurse to remove 3 hrs later. I,m still bleeding after 5ds later. I hope I surviveprayDr.Vcanseeme
