30 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

"I was a high risk patient suffering from a yeast infection suspected to stem from the heart valve(s). I had had aortic valve surgery 7 years prior when a bovine valve replaced my aortic valve and there was severe damage to the aortic wall as well as the mitral valve due to a staph infection from dental work that was misdiagnosed as a urinary tract infection. No surgeon wanted to operate on the yeast infection because I was a high risk patient. If I did not have this surgery I would spend the remainder of my life in and out of hospitals. Dr. Stelzer agreed to do the operation and saved my life. He replaced the bovine aortic valve which was then found to be the seat of the infection and replaced it with a human aortic valve. Not only is he a great surgeon, but a great human being as well and the most caring doctor I have met during my 82 years. You could not find a better doctor."
