4 Patient Reviews for Dr. Bleiweis

"My pulmonary valve replacement went very well and I was released just 5 days after surgery. We feel that Dr. Bleiweis is the absolute best there is!"

-- Michael Rogers, Pulmonary Valve, Valve Replacement, 06/02/2011

"On the first visit when I met Dr. Bleiweis, he walked in the room and introduced himself; "Hi, I'm Mark!" I immediately felt a connection and my parents were put at ease not only with his bedside manner, but also with his extensive experience with pulmonary valve replacement on Tetrology of Fallot patients. Dr. Bleiweis took time to explain the procedure, review my MRI, X-rays and Echocardiogram with us. The surgery went very well, so well I was released just 5 days after surgery. We feel that Dr. Bleiweis is the absolute best there is! "
