||01/04/12||5||5||5||5||Back in April, 2000, I went to the emergency room at St Joseph’s one morning about 7AM after having suffered through several episodes of chest pain during the night. They started a nitroglycerine drip and asked if I had a cardiologist, I said no, and they called Dr. Gordon Azar who came right away He immediately saw that I had a septal infarct and he sent me straight to the cath lab-wasting no time. He did a cardiac catherization, which was totally painless, and he placed a stent in my coronary artery. It is still there and working twelve years later, keeping that artery open, and blood flowing to my heart muscle. Dr Azar “saved my heart”. (so the nurses all said) and I could tell he was an exceptional Doctor. Some years later my cousin had the same problem, and I told him to immediately call Dr. Azar, he did, and Dr. Azar also saved his life. If you have chest pains or heart issues, definitely call Dr. Azar; He will take great care of you! God bless Dr. Azar.||Respond|
