Gerry Causey Testimony




Causey met CM 11 years ago in Las Vegas when he had a heart attack. He was 57 years old and had high blood pressure but didn’t expect to have a heart attack. CM talked to him for a few minutes about the procedure, made sure he understood and made him sign papers. He didn’t want to be sedated for the procedure. 

Causey says that he received one stent and kept seeing CM for controls after the procedure and they became friends. Causey says that CM explains everything in simple terms and doesn’t rush the patients. Once Causey spent 4 and half hours in CM’s office.
