5 out of 5 stars

5 out of 5 stars

All of the staff were great and I do mean ALL of the staff I interacted with. They explained everything clearly and as thoroughly as I needed. Dr Ali certainly made me feel at ease - as much as possible - about having bypass surgery. Hopefully, it all goes well. Follow-up…I made it. Everything went well - I wish I remembered names but in all honesty they were all great. The staff that visited while I was in the hospital walked and talked me through everything and they were kind and patient. Follow up was great. I don’t have a single complaint..
