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

"We were getting ready to move to South Carolina in 3 weeks and I went to see Dr. Gerdisch to get an aortic valve replacement before our move. He recommend a open heart value replacement because of my age (68) and that I was in good health.

Dr. Gerdisch told me if I did the surgery that I would never regret it and I would be able to make the trip to South Carolina in 2 weeks. He was absolutely right. I came through the surgery better than I could have ever imagined.

Little to no pain after surgery with a quick recovery. I was in South Carolina 2 weeks to the day after my surgery. Everything that Dr. Gerdisch said was absolutely true. Dr. Gerdisch kept my wife informed during the surgery. Six weeks after my surgery, I feel so much better and have no regrets about doing the surgery.

Dr. Gerdisch has perfected his own surgical procedure and it is amazing. The staff at Franciscan Health is amazing. My scar is also amazing. No railroad track scare and it is already getting hard to see.

If any of my loved ones or anyone I know needs heart surgery, I will see that Dr. Gerdisch does it. My wife and I both feel Dr. Gerdisch is amazing. "
