Not only did he find me an excellent surgeon, the Doctor who assisted that surgeon was world-class, excellent .As a matter of fact, Dr. Joseph McGinn invented the minimal invasive technique.That is a lot easier on your recovery time and body.Dr. Vann assche is a top-notch Cardiologis and I recommend him highly.
