8 Patient Reviews for Dr. Churyla

"On 1/24/2018, I had both my aortic and mitral valves replaced ... removing mechanical valves that were put in back in May 2015 at a different hospital and different surgeon and replacing them with cow tissue valves. Therefore, this procedure in January 2018 was my second open-heart surgery in 2.5 years. For the sake of this review, I will be brief and to the point. If you are in search of the best cardiac surgeon, both inside and out of the surgical room, stop your search now and book your appointment with Dr. Churyla’s office. He is the best there is in the surgical room, and he genuinely cares about you as his patient. Please trust me. I am alive because of this man!"

"I owe my life to Dr. Churyla and the team at Bluhm. Dr. Churyla came to visit me every day of my 7 day stay, even on a day he had back to back heart transplants. I'm a competitive skier. He assured me I would be able to ski this season. And I did! His bedside manner is incredible. He's one of the finest Physicians I have ever had."
