My Mom had open heart surgery 4/27/17 , and going through that process was hard , but with the comfort of Dr. Gulkarov he made things alot easier, he answered all our questions and we had many , he explain everything to us , it was very comforting knowing that we can trust him to do a major procedure on our mom...Thank you Dr. G and to your Staff that helped , we truly appreciate it.
