Dr. Kritzer and I have had a collaborative relationship since my MI nineteen years ago. He is responsive and encouraging of my attempts to be heart healthier. I hope I won't need him anytime soon as an interventional cardiologist, but if I do I am confident he will do his damnedest to help me return to good health.

*Dr. Kritzer never remembers who I am nor what my history is. He has a set treatment regimen that he stated the first time I met him. You are old, a woman and obese. So you do (not then) or will have cardiac disease. I have no other options but this doctor.
