I had a sudden heart attack. I was called dead or unresponsive for 5 minutes. Some male doctor with a foreign name, put in 2 heart stents and woke me up.

April Valdez is a WONDERFUL PROVIDER, and I LOVED the interaction in my conversation with her. She was very helpful in answering my questions, and i noted that she approved of my Dietary Pursuits. She Recommended that I use the Mediteranian Diet, and I asked her specifically what that diet is comprised of, and she answered my question in the affirmative when I told her that I had already started using mostly a plant based diet to help my circulatory system to improve. I am extremely pleased to have April Valdez as my provider.
