6 Patient Reviews for Dr. Soltesz

"I had a extensive surgery with five procedures including a bypass of the circumflex artery, maze procedure on the right and left side, aortic valve replacement with a bovine valve, tricuspid valve repair, left clip of atrial appendage.

This was done January 5th, 2017 (only about 5 months ago). Dr. Soltesz explained everything in detail including the presurgical test results. He was personable and through as well as compassionate. I believe that he has saved my life and my recovery from a difficult major surgery is progressing well."
