6 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Patel did this procedure on my husband this year at U of Michigan. We were so relieved to have him be Denny’s surgeon again as he did his first aorta and valve repair back in 2011.
Dr. Patel is very nice, explained things in a way you can understand and very competent. My daughter and I know at least 4 other people that he did aneurysm surgery on and they were all happy with their outcomes.
He is a great surgeon with the best team and the best bedside manner."
