Pat’s family is glad he got a second opinion on his heart surgery options. Pat was told by another cardiologist that he was not a candidate for heart valve replacement, so the best they could do is to make him comfortable.  Pat decided to get a second medical opinion at PinnacleHealth.

He had more energy and his friends couldn’t believe how he improved.
