In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins.

This man has wings under his scrubs. I swear to it. He has saved my baby time and time again. There is no one else i would trust to hold my childs little heart in his hands. I owe everything to this man for everything he has done for our family. The time and compassion he gives his patients is almost unheard of anymore. I HIGHLY recommend this surgeon.
Incredibly caring and brilliant. He is so skilled. He was recommended to us from another physician. We drive over 4 hours to see him and would do so in a heart beat. We have had other surgeons, but no one has taken as much time with us explaining. And his handiwork shows; two other docs were quite impressed with what/how he had gotten our son through a very complicated surgery, after what was botch work by another. Thank you Dr. E
