Patient Comments (1)
in I lived in Orange Grove, Tx |
I was Dr. Kamat's patient back in 1999 where he put 5 stent in. Dr. Kamat was WONDERFUL he was so kind, caring and very smart. I wish I lived closer I would still be using him. There is not enough words to describe how very special this man is to me and to this day I still talk about him when it comes to stents. Miss you Dr. Kamat ( he probably doesn't even remember me)
