    Dr Vetter has been my husbands cardiologist for over 14 years. Without him, and the other knowledgeable Dr. he is associated with my husband would not be here today. He is very knowledgeable in his field. I just want to say he will be missed, and I am sure he has lots of big plans after his retirement. Drive safely Dear Doctor. Carole Curtis.
