    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins.

Best Doctor

I would recommend Dr. Breitkreutz to anyone. He is very patient, smart, and honest. He will tell you anything you want to know. He won't hold anything back. He has done two of my lung surgeries and I wouldn't have wanted a different doctor. He is the best.
