What People Say About Dr. Stanley Tam, MD
Reply
Dr. Stanley Tam and his team is a real gem of cardiac surgery in Northeast of US. He performed a non-trivial surgery on me (four bypasses + valve replacement) on Wednesday. On Sunday I went home feeling good and with no pain! I admire his real state-of-the-art technique! Of course, nurses team in ICU of St.Elizabeth hospital worked as Swiss clock, which helped quick recovery a lot! Thank you, dr. Tam!
