Simply can not say enough about Dr. Law and the team he works with. We are forever grateful for his dedication to the children. I highly recommend Dr. Law.

Dr. Law has done a wonderful job repairing my SVT. He told me that he could fix the problem in my heart and my condition has not returned after having the surgery in 2009. He has improved my way of life drastically and I think he's the best cardiologist I've ever worked with.
