Patient Review of Dr. Marc Gerdisch

"Dr. Marc Gerdisch’s bedside manner was impeccable. All of my questions were answered before and after my mitral valve repair."

-- Angie Gregory, heart valve surgery patient

"There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our experience was with Dr. Gerdisch, his entire staff, the nurses and others at Franciscan Health.

Everyone has been so compassionate, patient, accessible, and have really held our hand through this experience. Learning about Dr. Gerdisch's expertise with the HAART annuloplasty ring, rigid sternal fixation, non-narcotic pain management, and involvement with other ongoing studies gave us confidence he was the surgeon we needed.

In addition, we heard personal testimonies about his skill but, equally important, his surgical judgment. He was confident and prepared to handle my husband's relatively rare case. His follow up with my husband in the hospital, willingness to call me outside of his rounds, and everything else has been so reassuring.

We are thrilled that my husband's aortic valve and congenital aneurysm have been repaired and addressed, respectively. THANK YOU!!!!!"
