"I cannot recommend Dr. Stouffer, who works out of the Heart and Lung Surgical Care at Memorial Hospital, enough. We met Dr. Stouffer as he was the consulting cardiothoracic surgeon who read over the testing that confirmed my need for my bicuspid aortic valve to be replaced.
Dr. Stouffer's bedside manner was impeccable; he took his time to carefully explain the results of my testing, providing us with our different options without pressuring us, and patiently answered each and every question we had. Even though it was late, he didn't rush us and at no point did we feel as if he was anxious to leave; on the contrary, he was kind, compassionate, and patient.
When I had questions leading into my procedure, he called me within a few hours to ensure my questions were answered fully. The staff at his office has quickly responded to all my needs and has followed up with me during office hours if I call after hours with a question and have spoken with the doctor on call. I had open heart surgery with Dr. Stouffer and the experience was honestly better than I could have imagined; everyone who worked with me was incredibly loving and kind. Dr. Stouffer was able to respond within my procedure to a need that had not shown up during my 39 years of testing; I woke up in the ICU to the most phenomenal care. Every single nurse, specialist, and tech that worked with me was kind, compassionate, and loving. Dr. Stouffer was involved in my care through discharge from the hospital and has been a source of support during my early recovery. Dr. Stouffer came heavily recommended by others in the community, from those within the medical field and outside of it. I can see why everyone raves about him as a person, about his bedside manners, and his skills as a cardiothoracic surgeon.
I am four weeks out from my surgery and doing incredibly well and I know I have Dr. Stouffer and his staff to thank for my recovery. I cannot recommend him enough!"
