24 Patient Reviews for Dr. Accola

"I’m feeling fantastic! Dr. Accola performed a mitral valve repair for me just 12 weeks ago. This amazing surgeon is a truly gifted man."

-- Denise Ring, heart valve surgery patient

"I highly recommend Dr. Accola. I was just diagnosed this summer with a leaking bicuspid aortic valve. My hometown cardiologist recommend it be replaced within 6 months but didn't recommend in our town.

I did research and found Dr. Accola. He took 2 personal phone calls before I decided to drive 10 hours for the surgery. He made arrangements that worked for me. He has the best bedside manner of any Dr. I have ever met. You can tell during prep and recovery that the staff that is in love with him. I am only 6 days out of surgery but doing very well. Still have my recovery to go through but I would recommend Dr. Accola to anyone need valve surgery.

The Florida Hospital that he works out of is outstanding too!! Thanks Doc!!!"
