Patient Comments (1)
Jonesboro, GA |
I suffered a heart attack on 1/26/17 and thru blind luck I was assigned to Dr. G. From the first time I met him I felt at ease with him. He knew I was scared but he was reassuring and explained everything that he would have to do. He inserted 5 stents in 3 blocked arteries. Due to time involved this was done over 2 angioplasties. He could have just as easily sent me downtown for bypass surgery. Follow up visits with him have been pretty much on time, and with him, not a pa.
