Best Cardiologist:

Dr. Yusuke Yahagi

Dr. Yusuke Yahagi, chief of cardiothoracic and vascular surgery for Citizens Medical Center, has performed surgery in the Crossroads for seven years.

The first life Yahagi saved was a motor vehicle accident victim.

"I was a surgical intern, and I cracked open his chest in the emergency room," Yahagi said. "He did well, and I couldn't sleep that night because I was so excited."

Yahagi performs heart, lung and vascular surgeries. He said his win is most likely because he cares for his patients with meticulous detail.

Last month, the doctor was also named Rock Star of the Day by KLUB 106.9 FM, the Rock.

"I am humbled and honored to win," he said. "I thank the Crossroads residents and all the employees at Citizens Medical Center for supporting me."
