"Dr. Chadwick Stouffer is a member of the East Tennessee Cardiovascular Group in Knoxville Tennessee. Prior to the surgery, Dr. Stouffer took the time to discuss the questions I had concerning the surgery, the various options and his recommendations, his background and experience, and the risks involved with the surgery. After the appointment, I felt comfortable with him and confident with deciding to have him perform the surgery. He was subsequently able to repair the mitral valve and stop the leak. He also performed a Maze procedure to treat my Atrial Fibrillation. My subsequent recovery has proceeded well, I am now in the 8th week of recovery when I write this. I have had two follow-up appointments with Dr. Stouffer during which he took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns that I had about my recovery. His nurse, Rebecca Bruer, has also been available by phone to answer any questions that I had during the recovery period and has been very helpful. The office staff were all professional and courteous. I am very thankful to have had Dr. Stouffer perform the surgery. I have provided more detail in my journal - November 10, 2011.
