28 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

"We were fortunate to have obtained Dr. Accola to perform my surgery. His expertise in the thoracic field is well-documented (He is clearly a "Rock Star" amongst thoracic surgeons in the country). What is more impressive than his credentials, was his caring and "down to earth" approach toward the patient, as well as his team pre/post surgery It was like having your best-friend perform your surgery. My "bottom line" is that I trusted my "heart" life to Dr Accola, and will until forever. If anyone needs "heart life" procedures, you should trust him also. Sincerely, Ron Hanna "
