"I am 74 and it is going on three years since Dr Sabik and the team of skilled professionals replaced my aortic and mitral valves. Dr Sabik is a highly skilled surgeon and he has a very caring manner after the operation. I did not have any complications and glad that I chose Dr Sabik and the Cleveland Clinic for my procedure. If you are having heart issues make Cleveland Clinic your first stop"

"Dr. Sabik leads an expert team that prides itself on successfully repairing valves that others say have to be replaced, and they often use minimally invasive techniques, as they did for me. Soft-spoken, thorough, and kind, Dr. Sabik's limited time with me was unhurried and deeply reassuring. His team offered warm and encouraging support, and I understood that they divide and conquer to keep him in the operating room as much as possible. I feel that my recovery so far is practically miraculous, and I am deeply grateful for the care I received at Cleveland Clinic."

"I'm 67 and it's been about 9 weeks. Can't say enough good stuff about Dr. Sabik, his surgery team and my care at Cleveland Clinic. I saw him 2 or 3 times after surgery and am happy I had the chance to look him in the eyes and say thanks.The best part is I asked him how things went, he gave me 2 thumbs up and said "perfect". "

"I highly recommend Dr. Sabik. He and his team were excellent. Both the surgery and recovery were far easier than I'd anticipated, and the interactions with this excellent surgeon were comfortable, unhurried, and always made me feel completely confident.

Cleveland Clinic's motto is "patients first" and each of the dozens of caregivers that assisted me, with only one unfortunate exception, embodied this philosophy. I traveled a very long way to have my surgery at this top not facility, and I am very glad I did. I hope you will consider Dr. Sabik for your surgery -- you will be in the very best of hands."

"I was thoroughly pleased with Dr. Sabik and his team at Cleveland Clinic."

"Excellent experience. Dr. Sabik and the entire Cleveland Clinic staff exceeded every expectation. Dr. Sabik is personal, professional, and most importantly, highly skilled. I was 40 when I had the procedure and I'm still doing great. I live in Nashville, TN and while I know there are great doctors everywhere, I would recommend no place else than the Clinic. If I wasn't having open heart surgery, I would have felt more like I was on vacation."

"The procedure went fine. They were not able to repair the aortic valve first diagnosed as a bicuspid valve but was a tricuspid valve. I'm happy with the result and overall experience with The Cleveland Clinic."

"From the moment you arrive at the Cleveland Clinic this world class operation leaves no doubt that you are in the best of hands. Dr. Joseph Sabik's thorough, caring consultation and excellent bedside manner are underscored by the tremendous expertise of this gifted surgeon. My scar is barely noticeable and very little post surgical sternotomy pain. Dr. Sabik and his entire staff are amazing and I give them the highest recommendation. "

"Dr Joseph Sabik practices at the Cleveland Clinic. The entire experience including the surgery and aftercare was most professional. If you have to have it done this surgeon and hospital is highly recommended."
