32 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 am a 43-year old male. Dr Accola repaired my left valve on a Tuesday and by Thursday I was doing laps on the hospital floor feeling brand new. I just can not put into words how grateful I am that he was my surgeon that helped my heart become stronger then ever. Not only is Dr Accola a amazing surgeon, he kept my family informed during the surgery by sending someone out to talk to them even after surgery was complete Dr Accola spoke to my family to let them know everything went smooth, that meant a lot to them. Here I am 2 and a half weeks out and just waiting to see Dr Accola so that he can tell me all the things that I can do like driving, working and working out, I feel like I never had the surgery done. Dr Accola and team better known as the "A Team" the best in the world. Heaven Sent!"
