Dr. Trento

"Dr. Trento had great bedside manner and did outstanding work reconstructing my aorta while sparing my valve. Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles is a top notch hospital."

-- Jerry Andis, heart valve surgery patient

"I can’t think of enough adjectives that would describe the process. Dr. Trento is a consummate professional, I knew I would be in excellent hands. Esteemed by his colleagues, clearly the staff respect him for the work he does. And he instilled confidence that all would be perfect in his hands. He spent all the time necessary addressing my questions and doing whatever he could to reassure me. And yes - a perfect repair as judged by the echo."
