    How was your appointment with Dr. Garzia?

    Oct 28, 2020
    Dr Garzia did a valve repair for me. Other doctors wanted to replace it but I wanted it repaired and Dr garzia said he could repair it and he did and I now have no leakage. Princeton was a great hospital to have my surgery. Everyone took such good care of me and was so professional.
