    I felt like he was the most professional man, doctor that I have gone to and I really like the fact that he took the time to draw on the board about my heart and how it actually works and what would be the next procedure I would have to have done if something goes wrong with my heart again. And his assistant was also very helpful and very professional. I would highly recommend both of them to anybody. Thank you.
