Dr Bouchard is a cardiac surgeon operating out of the Montreal heart institute (Institut de cardiologie de Montréal). He is quite punctual, helpful, knowledgeable and quite experienced having practised in the U.S. I am told that he operates approx. 200 times per year, of which 20 interventions are of a delicate and specialized nature. I was a patient of his in 2006 and the operation was a success. I would recommend Dr Bouchard (5/5).
