Dr. Gillinov

"I can't thank Dr. Gillinov and the Cleveland Clinic enough."

-- Robin Williams, heart valve surgery patient

"I felt very comfortable with Dr. Gillinov as my surgeon as he specializes in mitral valve surgery and performs several hundred mitral surgeries per year. Dr. Gillinov spent quite a bit of time with me before my surgery, discussing the procedure and answering all of my questions. He has a great bedside manner - very easy to talk to, explains things in layman's terms and is empathetic. His staff is top notch - attentive, understanding, answered questions and made me feel well cared for. I would highly recommend Dr. Gillinov!"
