Patient Testimonial

“On the afternoon of Christmas Eve, I had an intense and unusual pain in my back and told my husband to take me to the emergency room. When we were a few blocks from the Los Gatos Emergency Department (ED), I went into cardiac arrest. When we pulled into the ED parking lot, my husband banged on doors for help. Harumi came running and began chest compressions in the car.

While there are many people who are responsible for me being alive, I absolutely credit Harumi for keeping me alive.”
