Harvey Bigelson saved my life 20+ years ago. My condition was diagnosed inaccurately. I went to Harvey Bigelson and he diagnosed me with stressed liver. In 14 hours of his care I was on my way to full recovery. This was after 8 years of being under doctor's care and being diagnosed inaccurately. Surely they have the wrong people in court.
