Patient Testimonial, Johns Hopkins HealthCare: “I cannot describe what I would say (to my providers) other than I’m so thankful they were there and saved my life,” said patient Doris Orem. “No words can explain.” It took a cardiologist to revive her heart. It took surgeons to insert the stents. But it took a team to save a patient’s life and give her a second chance.
