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

"How blessed I was to know going into surgery that Dr. Adams could handle any surprises that he might encounter during a complex mitral valve and tricuspid valve repair with a MAZE procedure.

While previous surgeons told me that "no one would repair my MV", Dr. Adams confidently assured me that he was "100% sure" he would repair my valves and repair/reconstruct other contributing factors.

Dr. Adams is a gifted surgeon who only settles for excellence. I was completely at ease in his care. At 4-weeks post surgery I am gaining strength every day and look forward to a healthy and fulfilling future!"
