4 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Romano

"Very thorough. Doctor Romano made me feel comfortable about procedure. "

-- Susan wozniak, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 06/16/2015

"I found pre-op visits to be informative and to have all questions my wife and I had answered. Pre-op visits helped prepare me for surgery and I entered that day with confidence in Dr. Romano. My recovery has been excellent. At 8 weeks, I am in regular exercise and just completed twenty miles on my bike. I am working everyday 5-6 hours. I am 72, feel great and am very thankful for my surgery, the outcome, and being able to continue my active lifestyle. I also thank Dr. Ramano and his nursing staff for the good response to all my questions during my recovery. The minimal type incision surgery to replace my aortic valve is one I am now very happy to have made."
