I met Dr. Beller when I was a junior in HS as a patient. He performed a cardiac catheterization on me. He made me feel comfortable and like this was all routine. As a 65 yr old man, I remember him wiht fondness. My current cardiologist knew who he was and had good things to say about him. Blessings on his family. He is a loss.
