Very good!
November 2017
Exceptional! Dr. Velamoor took extra time & care in explaining surgery/recovery process in terms my son could understand ( my son is special needs). Dr. also let my son listen to his heart & compare the sound with his own heart to help him understand that his beat needed repair.
