Patient Review of Dr. David Adams

"I had my mitral and tricuspid valves repaired and a partial cryo-maze procedure done for atrial fibrillation. Dr. David Adams did a great job!"

-- Mark Linnus, heart valve surgery patient

"David Adams is a gifted and passionate surgeon. I researched all the major mitral valve repair surgeons throughout the US. (And I have a Masters in Health Care Policy and Planning , so tend to be beyond thorough.)

Dr. Adams was hands-down the most impressive for a repair. I had severe calcification and three leaks in my mitral valve, so there were not many surgeons that could guarantee me a repair (and fully confident that there would be no residual regurg).

Indeed, Dr. Adams did exactly what he said. Plus, he tightened-up my tricuspid valve, so that I would not have to undergo OHS again for that in the coming years. His entire hand-picked team from admissions to the ICA and step-down were all outstanding. #grateful

My incision was only about four inches long, as well. "
