10 years ago I started to have a heart attack because my right coronary artery was blocked 95%. Dr. Stark put 2 stents in the artery and saved my life. This past year I stopped watching my diet and stopped taking my meds as prescribed. I recently was having chest pains and Dr. Stark found my artery blocked over 90% and put another stent in, and again, he saved my life & kept me from having a heart attack. I can't thank him enough. God bless you Dr. Stark. Our family loves you for the work you do.
