23 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

"Dr. Accola was amazing. At my office visit, he took the time to explain everything that was going to happen. Then, he took the time to answer any questions I had.

When it came to the day of surgery, Dr. Accola came and saw me before the surgery and several times after. I have a 20-year old daughter who was obviously very worried about me. She said to me after my surgery that Dr. Accola had someone come out and update her during the surgery. Then, he personally came out and spoke to her when the surgery was over. That means a lot to me because I was worried about her. I have had my post-op visit and I am doing very well. In closing, I would have to say that if anyone is looking for a great heart surgeon... Dr. Accola is your man!"
