"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 am one of Jehovahs Witnesses and Dr. Gerdisch quickly assured me of his willingness to work with me regarding bloodless surgery to replace my aortic heart valve. He welcomed our questions and answered them all to our satisfaction. I had complete confidence I had found the best surgeon and my date was set for June 1, 2016. I was in the hospital for 5 days. He saw that I was given excellent care, my echocardiogram revealed excellent results and I know from experience I did make the best choice, He is kind, caring, and a very skilled surgeon. I had no doubt he would honor my convictions regarding my faith and that was the most important quality to me. I would recommend him with full confidence to anyone needing a serious surgical procedure."
