At 2 months old in June 1981, I do not remember meeting Dr. LaCorte but have heard many stories from my parents. At 10 months old in Feb. 1982, I had A/V canal surgery (fairly new surgery at that time). Dr. LaCorte had been my cardiologist from diagnosis of my heart condition until he retired from NY at which that time I was around 30 years old. I am now 4 months shy of 34, and if it was not for Dr. LaCorte I may not be here now. He is an amazing doctor I have had the pleasure of being his patient for many years!
