I feel very, very good now
For about a year, I would get easily tired and feel faint when I stood up from sitting down. Orlando Health got me back to feeling my best again. I do everything now. My daughter tries to slow me down!

It’s Like Someone Took a Lead Weight Off of My Shoulders
Before my operation, I felt like my heart could quit at any minute. But with the help of Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute, I had my Watchman procedure and am no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring.

Starting a new dream together
The cardiac rehab team...wow. If there was a day when I just felt like I couldn’t do it, they would listen, motivate, and encourage me. I still go back and see them because they are now going to forever be a part of my life.

I Choose Vascular Experts to Soldier On
It’s working just like Dr. Higgins said before the surgery. What he said it would do, it’s doing it.
