43 Patient Reviews for Dr. Gillinov

"I can't thank Dr. Gillinov and the Cleveland Clinic enough. I'm doing great after my heart valve surgery."

-- Robin Williams, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Gillinov is an expert at what he does and he is easy to talk to. After meeting with him for a consultation I felt completely comfortable having him perform my surgery. My mitral valve repair surgery went very well without any complications and I had very little discomfort afterwards, even though I had a median sternotomy (6 inch incision). During my recovery when I was back at home in Florida, I had questions or concerns from time to time. I emailed Dr. Gillinov and he responded within a matter of minutes or hours the same day. I found him to be calm, knowledgeable, confident yet humble and a very nice person. It has been over 3 months since my surgery and my repaired valve is performing well and my heart is healthy. I highly recommend Dr. Gillinov and the Cleveland Clinic. "
