Appointment was a reference standard for physicians—clear, concise, very, very well researched and hence prepared….Dr Crespo’s review of extensive, 20-year heart-issue history replete with previous procedures led to innovative options shared comfortably with patient…. A patient benefitting from a team paired with cardiologist Dr. Ferraro-Borgata and Dr. Crespo would be blessed from truly extraordinary counsel and treatment….
