Dr. Gawey has always been a considerate doctor.

Dr. Gawey has always been a considerate doctor. I had an exam this past April and Dr. Gawey advised that my wife and I go for 3 cardiovascular screening tests offered at the Heart Institute. These 3 simple screens indicated that I had major blockage in my right carotid artery. I received a phone call from Dr. Gawey that afternoon and was summoned to his office--late Friday. He set up the CV Imaging to have the diagnosis confirmed the next week. As it turn out, I had over 90 blockage and the surgery was a complete success. I feel his screening recommendation may have prevented a stroke and I am very grateful.
