this visit didn't involve a student doctor. So nice to be able to meet with Dr. Kritzer directly and without the layers that prevented me from asking questions directly to him in March.

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 has been my cardiologist since 2002. I came from Idaho to see him.
