8 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Soltesz

"I needed surgery right away and Dr. Soltesz worked me in within 2 days and operated 2 days later. My valve was so bad it snapped his scissors during surgery. He took the time to explain the procedure to me and my wife in pre-op. He came out of surgery to tell my wife all of the good news and answered all of her questions. His team was closely involved in all phases of recovery and I was very pleased with the recovery process at the Cleveland clinic. If you have a difficult heart issue Edward Soltesz is your guy. "

"He explained the procedure and what would take place afterwards as far as blood thinners and the effects that foods with vitamin K have on the medicine. Showed care and concern of my current health situation."
