THE BRONX -

A heartfelt reunion took place Monday at Montefiore Medical Center, as the hospital celebrated its 300th heart transplant.

Many former patients shared their experiences of how their heart transplants changed their lives.

Doctors at the hospital said the stories touch their own hearts.

"I was losing the tears, you know, because we train 10 to 15 years to be able to do this and the beauty of medicine is that you impact deeply a patient and their family's lives," said Dr. Daniel Goldstein.
