Dr. Locher is a skilled, trustworthy and Christian man. My husband had open bypass surgery an June 17, 2019. As they were taking him off of the by pass machine his aorta ripped and the 4-5 hour surgery turned into 11 hours. During the 23 days in Cardiac Recovery Unit Dr. Locher was there to encourage me and even prayer for us. He was "right there for us". Dr. Locher telIs you how it is --straight out. He listens to you and takes his time to answer your questions. I would recommend Dr. Locher to anyone.
