Patient Testimonial: An Unexpected Heart Attack in Mesa
“Having never been a smoker, drinker or a person with risk factors for a heart attack, I never imagined I would nearly die from one. After suffering a near fatal heart attack at my daughter’s home in Mesa, I was rushed to Mountain Vista Medical Center where they saved my life! If it hadn’t been for their prompt care and medical expertise, I don’t think I would be here today.
