26 Patient Reviews for Dr. Stelzer

"Dr. Stelzer is an amazingly gifted surgeon and an amazing human being! I literally owe my life to him."

-- Jeff Shebovsky, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Stelzer is an incredibly gifted surgeon, with the bedside manner of an angel. I'm eighty years old, I had surgery on a Monday, and I went home on Sunday. While most surgeons swing by, look at you and keep going, Dr. Stelzer personally stopped in twice per day to check in on me, sat with me at least ten minutes each time and wanted to know how I was doing. It's a tad early to give surgical results, but I can say this, I'm sooooo much better than I was before surgery! I'll return to update this post, as I'm confident that I'll have great news."
