Dr. Breese saw me so I could be established as a new patient. After talking and discussing my issues, instead of just letting me go, and setting up a follow-up, he took it further and started a plan of action to find out what was going on with my health and addressed the other issues I'm having. He is truly a one in a million and I'm blessed to have him as my Cardiologist.
