"I see a wide range of patients. Some patients are right in the midst of having a heart attack. In that situation we run, don’t walk, to the procedure laboratory because time is muscle loss. In that sort of emergency procedure we don’t have time to talk to the family. Patients and families have to trust in us and we are going to work in their best interest." — James Rossen
