"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

"There are no words to describe this man..... There was no time to get to know each other. I'm an 18-year old teenager who was brought in for emergency surgery on March 1, and in the OR by March 2nd.... Under the circumstances he put us right at ease, and made us feel safe and confident. He saved my life!!!!

Not only the best passionate surgeon, but what a compassionate, caring professional human being, and not to mention great sense of humor.. Thank you Dr. Stelzer for everything you have done for me and making my family feel I was in the best hands. You took the time everyday for me... No words can thank this man for everything he has done. "
