My husband, my daughter and my family have been so incredibly supportive. And I love the people in Cardiac Rehab. They have been a blessing.

“Thanks to a broken wrist that I needed surgery for, they discovered an abnormality I had in my heart. I feel so lucky because I got the repair done to both. As a retired OR nurse, and after 44 years helping others overcome serious health issues you know what’s to come when the tables are turned. It’s a completely different experience. My husband, my daughter and my family have been so incredibly supportive. And I love the people in Cardiac Rehab. They have been a blessing.”

As far as the hospital experience, I think that’s about as good as you could get. I’m just so thankful for that procedure, that Dr. Patel was able to do on me without opening my chest up. He did just a great job.
