25 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, heart valve surgery patient

"My experience with Dr. Marc Gerdisch was TOTALLY AWESOME from beginning to end. He is a human dynamo, while at the same time an humble and unassuming gentleman. He is eager to answer questions in understandable terms. He appears driven to treat his patients in the best possible manner. He has the admirable trait of giving credit for his success to his family, friends, patients and associates. Dr. Gerdisch has earned the utmost respect from his colleagues. He has a genuine smile which he uses often and effectively.

After Dr. Gerdisch accepted me as a patient, I had such a deep feeling that I was in good hands! From that moment on, I can say with no reservation, there was absolutely no trepidation. A calm peaceful feeling that remains with me to this day. I feel that God guides his every thought, diagnosis, decision, counsel with patients and his hands during surgery.

Dr. Gerdisch chose to repair my mitral valve. He explained exactly what he would be doing during my surgery. Everything went as planned! And my recovery has been better than expected and the scar is minimal."
