"Dr. Stelzer is clearly a technical leader in his field. I would note that his bedside manner is also wonderful. Dr. Stelzer performed a Ross Procedure on me with excellent results 4.5 weeks post op. He also cleaned-up/repaired my Mitral Valve during the same procedure. This is a clear testament to his skill and comfort level with this procedure. I traveled from Dallas, TX for the procedure and would travel around the world to do the same again if I had to. Thank you Dr. Stelzer. "

"Dr. Stelzer lights up every room he walks into. The nurses love him and his heart patients adore him. His bedside manner is truly amazing because he deeply cares for you and shows it easily with his sweet nature. I went to NYC for an excellent Ross surgeon -- I had no idea my family would fall in love with this guy! Talk about bonus! I had some fairly serious complications and he saved me; I feel God sent me to Dr. Stelzer because Houston isn't short of world class heart surgeons. Next month will be 1 year and I couldn't feel better. Dr. Stelzer is simply THE best."
-- Chris Dixon, heart valve surgery patient

-- Steven Ramirez, heart valve surgery patient
"Dr. Stelzer is the most caring medical professional I've ever met. The cardiac/thoracic aspect was painless even though it involved seven CABGs. Thanks to Dr. Paul Stelzer, the surgery eliminated all breathing difficulties. I now have the vital signs of an 18 year old. There has been an eight-month complication in my foot (which was not my surgeon's fault). It could have required toe amputations but did not because of excellent angioplasty in the leg and superb nursing care -- especially from my wife who is not a nurse."
-- James Conneen, heart valve surgery patient

"I couldn't have been happier with Dr. Paul Stelzer as my surgeon. From the first phone call with him, I knew he was the surgeon for me. His surgical skills were matched by his bedside manner. I am very pleased with the results and how fast I recovered and was back running....literally, just over a month. "
-- Vince Kelley, heart valve surgery patient
"My experience with Dr. Paul Stelzer was excellent. He correctly identified a mismatch issue with my earlier stented porcine replacement valve(done by another surgeon)that had until then eluded effective diagnosis. He replaced the previous vale and my aortic root with a complete homograft valve and root. All prior mismatch issues were eliminated. His skill, bedside manner, general availability and communication were excellent. "
-- David Thomson, heart valve surgery patient
"I traveled to New York for aortic root repair and valve replacement with Dr. Stelzer on the recommendation of my cardiologist. He explained the procedure prior to the surgery, tried to repair my valve and then replaced it when the repair would not hold, and managed my care after surgery when I had complications that forced me to stay for nearly 3 weeks following it. He was always patient and took the time to explain the effects of the treatments and made sure I was responding as expected. He also helped us deal with the insurance company and a rehabilitation hospital so I could be transferred to an appropriate facility close to my home "
-- Robert Penn, heart valve surgery patient
