The best heart surgeon in PA

September 21, 2015

Dr. Badhwar saved my life...literally. He performed emergency open heart surgery. I flat lined on the table because of a very sick heart and Dr. Badhwar worked a miracle to allow me to be sitting here today completing a survey less than 5 weeks from the August 21 surgery date.
