"I drove several hundred miles from my hometown (considered a medical magnet area by some) just to be treated by Dr. Ciuffo. Dr. Ciuffo was magnificent. His surgical skills were amazing. He replaced my aortic valve and made repairs to both the mitral and tricuspid valves; all through a cut less than 2 1/2 inches long. In addition to his surgical skills he is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. He treats you as though you are not only his patient but his friend. One week after discharge (which was 5 days after the surgery) I was back at work. If I have any heart issues in the future I will travel however far I need to have Dr. Ciuffo involved. "

"Dr. Ciuffo is an excellent surgeon with a warm and reassuring manner. I left the hospital after 3 nights/4 days and was able to care for myself right away. I never needed prescription pain killers. I was hiking in the Catskill mountains within 5 weeks."

"Dr. Ciuffo was absolutely the BEST for my dad. He performed aortic valve replacement surgery on Dad and 12 days later released him from his care. He spent only 3 days in the hospital after undergoing Dr. Ciuffo's minimally invasive procedure. Dad will be 78 in September and feels like a brand new man!! Thank you Dr. G, you are the BEST!!"

"I am grateful to have had Dr. Giovanni Ciuffo as my heart surgeon. Having done research and having a Cardiologist in my family made me fully aware that were Dr. Ciuffo not my surgeon, I would have had a valve replacement instead of a repair. Dr. Ciuffo practices the science and the art of heart surgery. He was also compassionate and reassuring in each encounter I had with him."

"My surgeon was very kind and inspirational. He is a scientist, an educator, a doctor, a gentleman and an exceptional role model. The moment that I met him, I saw myself cured. He helped me to cure myself. His hands were gentle and his voice was calm. When he took the tubes that were above my stomach (I don't know the medical term) out, he advised me to hold my breath and it worked. His conversation helped me to endure everything that accompanies this procedure. I thank God that I was allow to be cured by his blessing and that he sent Dr. Ciuffo through my path. He told me to live a happy life and that everything would me okay and it is. All of his thoughts have made him what he is now a brilliant surgeon and humanitarian. He told me that whenever I wanted to talk, he would be available. I love him."
