Dr. Allan Stewart is revered by his patients, and for good reason. They seek him out for his reputation as the top heart surgeon in the country. Yes he was part of the team that operated on former President Bill Clinton, and yes one of his partners is Dr. Mehmet Oz; but what makes him a Rock Star is the rare combination of expertise and compassion he gives to every patient that walks into his office. He has touched the lives of many of his patients and has long standing personal relationships with them. "To give someone more minutes on earth is not the same as encouraging them to live," says Stewart.
Dr. Stewart will run the 2012 ING New York City Marathon with Team Heartosaurus, a group of heart patients and others close to the cause who are raising money for the American Heart Association.
