"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 one of the best cardiovascular surgeons in the country! I had an ascending aortic aneurysm that needed repaired and needed an aortic mechanical onyx valve placed. Dr Gerdisch was flawless and did a remarkable job in performing my surgery as well as the care I was given afterwards in the SICU by Dr Gerdisch and all of his staff!

I had researched many surgeons and as an RN, Luckily I knew by word of mouth in my profession that Dr Gerdisch was the best! I was completely at ease going into this surgery! I knew I had the best surgeon for what I needed done! He is so articulate, smart, professional and caring! You could not go wrong by picking Dr Gerdisch! I would reccomend him to anyone! He exceeds all standards as does his staff! He expects the best from his colleagues and they are all very goal oriented when it comes to his patients and the care they receive! I am truly blessed to have known to go to Dr Gerdisch! He is one in a million! Thank you so much Dr Gerdisch for everything you have done for me!"
