"Dr. Marc Gerdisch’s bedside manner was impeccable. All of my questions were answered before and after my mitral valve repair."

-- Angie Gregory, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 02/10/2012

"I give Dr. Gerdisch and his team the strongest of recommendations. I did extensive research using the incredible HeartValveSurgery.com website and selected Dr. Gerdisch because: (1) I wanted a minimally-invasive thoracotomy procedure; and (2) Dr. Gerdisch received superior ratings from his patients. His excellent office team was compassionate, helpful and efficient. When I spoke with Dr. Gerdisch, he addressed all of my questions, and his expertise produced the highest level of confidence for me. He's very caring, and has an excellent bedside manner. If you do research on Dr. Gerdisch, you'll discover he has developed very innovative surgical approaches that produce the best possible outcomes for patients. I had high hopes for a smooth and quick recovery, but I have to say my aggressive expectations were exceeded! I'm still surprised that my recovery has been so rapid and smooth. I live in Washington, DC, and traveled to Indianapolis because I knew Dr. Gerdisch was the best surgeon for me. I am eternally grateful to have found such an excellent cardiac surgeon!"
