Wonderful, patient, thorough

Dr Castkemain is a brilliant heart surgeon. Not only did he save my life with an emergency operation, he also was thorough and found several other arteries in my heaRt that had partial blockages and repairEd or bypassed all blockages beside the 99% blocked main artery which brought me in the ER in the first place. He answered all questions from my large family group. He was was patient with all of us. Obviously cares about his patients and is so very excellent at his surgical skills and knowledge of procedures, and methods. I just can't say enough about him!
