"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 was diagnosed with an ascending aortic valve aneurism.I was born with a bicuspid aorta valve which started leaking. I am 62 years old. This leakage caused an aneurism 5.8cm. I am a non-smoker and always took good care of myself. I was shocked after learning the diagnosis. I was experiencing tiredness and shortness of breath. Within 2 weeks I was scheduled for surgery which I feel saved my life. I recieved an onyx valve and a new artery. Very pleased with Dr. Gerdisch and his staff. The St. Francis nurses and customer service was excellent. I am out 6 weeks, involved in rehab, my life is getting back to normal. Never felt better! I would recommend Dr. Gerdisch, his staff, and St Francis hospital. This was a very good experience under very stressing times."
