Four years ago, Dr. Pochettino saved my life. I needed emergency surgery for a congenital heart defect and was advised by my cardiologist that Dr. Pochettino was the only doctor in the area (Phila) who had experience performing the surgery I needed. After meeting with him, I knew I was in "good hands" and the surgery was a success. If I ever need the surgery again, I will want him as my surgeon again, no matter how far I have to travel.

Dr. Pochettino is an excellent surgeon. We were fortunate to have him be the doctor to conduct emergency surgery on my husband. When I say that he saved my husband's life, I truly mean that. There are not enough superlatives for him. He is very caring as well.
