60 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

"It's easy to see why Dr. Marc Gerdisch is the top rated valve replacement surgeon in the world. Prior to surgery he clearly explained what was going to happen before, during, and after my surgery. My procedure was textbook and was exactly what I expected.

Prior to surgery, my wife and I had a 45 minute meeting with Dr. Gerdisch. He answered all of our questions. What was most impressive about Dr. Gerdisch is the fact that he truly cares about each individual patient. You are not just "Another Number" to him. I could tell immediately that Dr. Gerdisch can relate to all types of people. He is a very caring, gentle, and kind man. And he's the best on the planet! My research, speaking with other Doctors confirmed this thought. I am humbled at the thought, of the best valve surgeon devoting 4 hours of his time to perform surgery on me in order to extend my life. What he did for me, cannot be repaid in dollars and cents. In fact, it can't be repaid in any form. For this I am grateful. And Dr. Gerdisch does this every day for all his patients.

You have fighter pilots, presidents, and astronauts. And above them, you have a guy named Dr. Marc Gerdisch - The Best of the Best"
