44 Patient Reviews for Dr. Gillinov

"I can't thank Dr. Gillinov and the Cleveland Clinic enough."

-- Robin Williams, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr Gillinov is one of the very best both by reputation and bedside manner. I didn't meet him until the day before surgery, however I felt I knew him through watching all of his videos which are available through the Cleveland Clinic website. He and the entire CC team were outstanding, and I highly recommend him and CC. Because I had experienced some a-fib on pre-op holter monitoring (2 week duration), he performed a maze procedure along with mitral repair."
