I have been seeing this care provider for many years and she was instrumental in getting me in with the TAVR team that provided me with the new valve. I think a lot of this provider for that and all of her prior treatments and advice.

This is the 3rd cardiologist that I've seen , but the first one who gave me some type of treatment. She did a great job of explaining things and thinking of additional tests. I was just so happy she agreed to see me with all of this craziness right now. Other doctors are canceling their appointments.
