Patient Comments (23)

My husband came to the ER, not knowing that he was in the middle of a “stuttering heart attack”, as diagnosed in minutes, by Dr. Carlson. We learned later, that we’d arrived “in the nick of time”. We Highly recommend Dr. Carlson and the team of professionals at Heart Hospital of Austin.
