Dr DeFreitas is a kind and extremely competent cardiologist. I have been under his care for 11 years now. Since I'm an adult congenital heart patient my needs are different from most adult cardiac patients, and he's trained to treat both children & adult congenital heart patients. He has seen me through my 3rd open heart surgery in 2009, a pacemaker and a trans-catheter valve replacement in 2012 plus ongoing treatment and care.
