He is a great doctor

Actually Dr. Alex is a genius doctor.I'm 55 years old. He resected my ascending aorta in a major operation on Oct 25th 2016. In other specialized centers in Paris and Germany they told me that my operation will take about 6 hours and I will take nearly 6 units of blood transfusion and I will stay 10 days in the hospital. With Dr. Zapolanski the operation took 3 hours with no blood transfusion and 5 days stay in the hospital with no complications. . I am so grateful to him. Words fail to express my gratitude.
