Patient Story

Freeman Patient

"Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute doctors worked together to save my life after I had a widower-maker heart attack – the kind of attack people just don’t survive. I’m grateful for the care I received and don’t know what I would have done without the therapists who helped me through rehabilitation."
