Patient Review of Dr. John Mehall

"I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse. Dr. Mehall performed a non-invasive mitral valve repair. I was out of the hospital in 3 days. I just started my 29th season as a ski instructor."

-- Gus Nicholson, Mitral Valve Repair, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Mehall has a great personality. I was petrified since I had no idea my heart was in trouble and lots of doctors missed what was wrong. I was so weak it was questionable I'd make it through surgery. Not only did I make it, thanks to God and Dr. Mehall, but I've had worse pain from a papercut than this surgery. I took one pain pill and that was it. Didn't need anything for pain ever. I actually fibbed when I was asked my pain level and said 1 to 2. Actually it was O mostly. Just my opinion, but I have a feeling Dr. Mehall is probably one of the best surgeons in the country."
