Patient Review of Dr. Alfredo 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’m likely not adding anything new beyond what has already been said, but Dr. Trento is the man. I saw him twice before my surgery, and in both cases he answered my questions very honestly and directly. He does not beat around the bush at any point - pre or post op. However I couldn’t have felt like I was in better hands.

Cedars Sinai is a very busy hospital, and I would wager Dr. Trento is its busiest surgeon. But I always felt like I could reach him or his exceptional staff. They always checked in on me during my stay, and even after, and answered all my questions. He predicted exactly how the operation would go down to exactly how long I’d be in the hospital. I’m forever grateful for him and would recommend him in a heartbeat to my family and friends."
