31 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

"At 12 days after surgery, I am already back to a fairly normal life -- working, walking, etc. Dr. Accola and his team were exceptionally thorough in discussing the procedure and addressing all of my questions in advance of the surgery. He successfully repaired my mitral valve without the need for a replacement value. I can't express enough how phenomenal the entire "team Accola" performed before, during and after the surgery. They are consummate professionals and are also quality humans that operate at the highest levels. It is this rare combination that sets the team apart. I am extremely grateful to have discovered this talented surgeon."
