Every patient has unique issues that deserve only the best and most complete care. Having been a diabetic for 50 years, mine certainly fell into that category. I was told that Dr Provias and Dr Benzully and a panel of other surgeons at NM cardiology discussed my case prior to my surgery. Fortunately, everything went as planned and I’m back to work and recovering quickly. The skill, professionalism, and concern for the patient are appreciated by me and my family. I strongly believe we are lucky to have the entire staff at NM cardiology for our health care needs.
