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

"First appointment we had with Dr. Gerdisch, I knew he was the one to do my aortic valve replacement, ascending aorta replacement, and left atrial appendage procedure. He displayed professionalism, knowledge, compassion and just being honest and down to earth. I didn't even consider a second opinion. I looked at a couple things in needing a second opinion. 1) test results, if those are questionable, 2) the experience with the doctor. Tests results are usually numbers, opinions, etc. Another set of tests wasn't going to change the facts based on my symptoms.

The doctor was a slam dunk. I researched him on this website and immediately learned I hit the jackpot.

My surgery, 4 days in hospital, and discharge was magnificent. Couldn't have gone any better. Minor things going on that's usually expected but Dr. Gerdisch, nurses, technicians, etc was top notch. I told them the reason I'm here isn't great but the way I was treated with care and compassion was excellent.

That's the memory I'll take away. Dr. Gerdisch and team has got this heart valve surgery journey fine tuned. It would be hard pressed to find other heart centers any better."
