Saved me

I was born in 1981 and the doctors knew something was wrong.  I had an appointment with Dr. Creanen and I had to wait until I was six-years-old to have my open heart surgery. I had an ASD & VSD repair on June 17, 1987.

I am 35-years-old now and have not had any issues since the surgery. I owe my life to Dr. Creanen and her staff. I would love to see her and thank her for my life.  She was an amazing Doctor.  I still see a cardiologist once a year but have no issues. I’m so thankful.
