I feel that cardiology is the most exciting field of medicine. We are constantly developing new procedures and techniques that are improving the quality of life for our patients. In all fields of medicine, the trust that develops between a doctor and a patient is the key to providing excellent long-term care. This is especially true for cardiology. ~Michael B. Russo, MD, FACC
