Heart Attack Survivor

I had a heart attack at 2am and he saved my life despite me vomiting on him. He put a heart pump and 2 stents through my arm. I am indebted to you doc. Your patient Dave (the vomit guy).

Very hard to get an appointment with but easily reached through the hospitals mychart mail. Literally saved my life and that if my wife. Found out I had thickening of the heart which made my breathing a problem. Find out my wife had pericarditis and heart inflammation. Very to the point. But truly competent.

We cannot stand Bassett as an organization. Poor parking. Difficult access. Run by non medical white collar folk. But we drive from Hamilton to see this doctor. He is patient, looks us in the eye and tells us like it is. My husband was sent for heart bypass and within 2 months was in the ICU with all his bypasses failed. This young Indian doctor who we thought was a kid at first, saved my husbands life by putting a temporary heart pump and stents. I see him for my afib and my daughter sees him for blood pressure. I would cry if he leaves Bassett .

stent doctor

i usually look up US news for the best heart doctors and Dr. Menzies was not listed. But then, neither were the other guys within a 200-mile radius. I came across the NY state PCI database on a web search and decided to give Bassett a try as I live in Utica. They gave me an appointment with Dr. Menzies in Herkimer. I was diagnosed with left main disease on heart catheterization by him; my only complaint was tremendous tiredness. He did the procedure from my wrist and sent me for surgery the next day. He truly saved my life.
