"An Australian trained physician, Dr. McGiffin is a very precise individual. He is known at UAB as the caretaker of the heart. His bedside manner is impeccable. I had 2 mechanical valves installed due to Endocarditus. I would recommend him fully."

"I did a thorough research study on Dr. McGiffin and once I met with him I knew he was the surgeon for me. Even though he's old school and opens you up, I believe that was the only solution to my problem. He fully explained what he was going to do and what I could expect right after the surgery and for the months ahead. He visited me several times before surgery to see if I had any last minute questions and also after the surgery."

"Very experienced and skilled. Handles questions with ease. Came strongly recommended. Open to discussing options - he is experienced with them all. Impressive team. UAB cadiac nurses were very professional yet warm; very skilled at handling whatever came up. "
