87 Patient Reviews for Dr. 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

"Dr Gerdisch is Awesome and I owe him my life!!! He was wonderful and very caring. Once I met him, I knew I was in great hands. I am a complicated case as I am told, I am dialysis patient, prior open heart - 7 bypass, double leg amputee, vascular disease, Gillian barre and cancer survivor with many drug allergies. Dr Gerdisch stated that he did something that he has not performed before. He did not want to open up my sternum because I need my arms to transfer since I am an amputee. The recovery time would be too long and rigorous. He went in to the side of my chest to repair a valve and through the neck to replace a valve in one surgery. I was home for Christmas!!! Everyone on his staff is also Great and personable. I would recommend him."
