2 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Sultan

"Dr. Sultan was thorough and professional. He explained the TAVR procedure well and I feel blessed that I was only in the hospital one day. I had open heart valve replacement procedure for the aortic valve 13 years ago and Dr. Sultan's operation was easier to deal with. I do not recall any pain or requiring any pain medication.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sultan for said procedure. Both he and Dr. Schindler worked very well as a team. I had a valve placed within a valve. I am 78 years old and I am not limited as to any activities. As recommended by Dr. Sultan, I have attended cardiac rehab for the past 5 months and continue a rehab workout at home.

I am very grateful for the professional care I received from Dr. Sultan, and Dr. Schindler and their team"
