"Dr. Schaff and his staff was fantastic. Great bedside manner and Mayo Clinic is top notch! After our initial visit with Dr Schaff we immediately knew he would be the one to do my surgery. Two years later with my mechanical valve, I'm doing great!"

"Dr Schaff and everyone at Mayo were absolutely wonderful. I could not have asked for anything better. At our first consult my gut feeling was of complete trust. I highly recommend him especially if you may be a candidate for a repair vs. replacement. His repair percentage is very high. "
