13 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Soltesz

"Patients and future patients: I discovered several frightening cardiac issues as incidental findings. My cardiologist told me surgery is definitely needed, and I obtained consultations from three experts. These recommendations varied, and I was in a state of fright and confusion.

When I was able to speak to Dr. Soltesz (and he generously gave me 50 minutes for our call) I knew at once that I could not be in better hands, nor be cared for by a better surgical team, than he. His expansive knowledge, his genuinely kind and caring manner, his full discussion of the risks and benefits of various courses of action, all combined to make me certain that, although heart surgery comes with risks and is of the most serious type, Dr. Soltesz was who I needed and I had complete confidence in him. Meeting him in person during my pre-surgery days of tests confirmed my decision.

Dr. Soltesz is not only world-class (the best) in his skills and abilities, he is also a caring man who is interested in you, your specific situation, and the best course of action. A rare man indeed! You can look up his credentials and resume and you will be amazed at his educational background.

Dr. Soltesz performed complicated surgery on me, which was completely successful. Mere thanks and gratitude can never be sufficient for what Dr. Soltesz has personally done for me, my family, and my quality of life.

Rarely in one's life does one meet a physician of such capability who is also such a fine and caring man. Thank you Dr. Soltesz!

The patient population is indeed fortunate to have such a man amongst us. May we have more like him in our midst!"

"Dr. Edward Soltesz is a very caring doctor. He carefully explained all issues to us prior to surgery, and he was very helpful and considerate to all family members post surgery. Dr Soltesz is an excellent heart surgeon and we would recommend him to others without any hesitation!"
