Patient Testimonials

“One year ago today, you and your medical staff repaired my mitral valve and performed a PFO closure.  I’m doing quite well and want to give you all a “heart-felt” thank you for taking such great care of me.”


“Just wanted to say thank you for a perfect operation and for all your support to me and my entire family.  You are my “guardian”.  I appreciate your talent as a surgeon.”


“Thank you so much for your efforts in helping my mom. From numerous phone conversations to quick admission to the hospital and gathering a team of dedicated and compassionate physicians, and finally to the heroic effort made in surgery, we are so very grateful. After spending time at the Adult Surgical Heart Unit (ASHU), I am left with a deep respect for the work you do there.”
