"Dr. Joseph Rowe, my surgeon, and Dr. Jason Foerst, my cardiologist, did an outstanding job with tests to determine the right entry before surgery. I had no complications and the doctors frequently updated my family during and after surgery. The post-operative program at Carilion Clinic activated me in a short period of time after surgery. "
