We're giving hope to those who have no hope. My name is Daniel Yip, I'm the Medical Director for Heart Failure Heart Transplant. I've always liked to be the person who tries to help people that others have told them, there's nothing more we can do for them. And many times, there are other things that we can do to help them. Particularly to improve their quality of life, to make sure that they have their questions answered, to make sure their families feel involved with the patient's care. One of the most rewarding things for me, are when patients tell me, I can go back to do things I used to like to do. We get affirmation from our patients that their lives are getting better.
