68 Patient Reviews for Dr. Gerdisch

"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

"The manner in which Dr. Gerdisch operates his practice gives high confidence that one's particular case is receiving personal attention and that alleviates the natural anxiety of significant surgery. His intensity, attention, and clarity give one absolute confidence that one is in the right hands for a major life event. Nurse Practitioner, Tara Lowe, was also especially helpful at various stages of this lengthy process. Whenever I contacted Dr. Gerdisch's office someone was immediately available and helpful. The level of professionalism and empathy I experienced in every encounter was truly special. Dr. Gerdisch performed four procedures on my diseased heart, correcting all the issues. He predicts with high confidence that my heart will now outlast the rest of my body. I am recovering very well on a supervised exercise program."
