I WOULD NEVER GO TO HIM AGAIN, HE PLACED A PACEMAKER IN JULY 31, 2013 , AND TOLD MY HUSBAND AND FAMILY THAT EVERYTHING WENT GOOD, BUT ALSO SAID HE PLACED 2 STENTS. WHICH IN DECEMBER 17, 2018 I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND HAD A EMERGENCY CATH, I FOUND OUT I HAD NO STENTS, BUT HE CHARGED MY INSURANCE FOR THEM. AND IT'S ON MY MEDICAL RECORD THAT HE PLACED 2 STENTS. SO WRONG. NEEDLESS TO SAY I'VE CHANGED HEART DOCTORS.
