42 Patient Reviews for Dr. Accola

"I’m feeling fantastic! Dr. Accola performed a mitral valve repair for me just 12 weeks ago. This amazing surgeon is a truly gifted man."

-- Denise Ring, heart valve surgery patient

"I met with Dr Accola two times before my MVR, he was a very good listener, answered all my questions, informed me all I needed to know pre and post op. He was highly recommended by my cardiologist and the by the 2nd opinion cardiologist along with 3 close friends who are Dr’s at the same hospital. Dr. Accola sincerely cares about his patients, he’s very kind and caring. He repaired my mitral valve 100%. I was able to get back on the tennis courts 3.5 months post op and was back to my leagues 4-5 days a week at 4.5 months post op. I feel very fortunate that I was able to have Dr Accola perform my MVR. "
