"The surgeon's bedside manner was like nothing I'd ever seen before. He sat on the bed beside me and cried while I was crying because my pain was so bad, I didn't think I was going to survive. He is such a caring, professional surgeon! He performed open heart surgery on me, replaced my bicuspid valve with a mechanical, and performed a graft on an aortic aneurysm."

"Dr. Ikon and his team definitely saved my life! I was under for 9 hours and they repaired extensive damage caused by endocarditis. They used a valve and root from a human cadaver. It's been 2 1/2 months and I'm recovering nicely. On my way to work now."

"Dr. Ikonomidis is an amazing person and surgeon. He is extremely well respected among his peers and medical personnel, and is considered one of the best in South Carolina. I had an extremely challenging surgery and I completely trusted Dr. Ikonomidis due to his amiable yet confident nature. I would highly recommend him to patients in search of an excellent and highly skilled surgeon. My recovery has been trouble free and I was back to work seven weeks after surgery. "

"Dr. Ikonomidis is highly recommended. Not knowing what I was about to experience, and having many concerns, all my questions were answered before, during, and after surgery. Every morning he came by my room to see how things were going and if I needed anything. Everything worked out great, a complete success. Now I have my life back and feel 100 % better. Brett"
