"From my 1st visit (consultation ), I felt I was in good hands. I was very scared, but he put my mind & my husband at ease. The surgery was successful and the post op care was great. He kept my husband & son in the loop, stopped by to see me after surgery several times. His bedside manner was outstanding. Thank you Dr. BORGER for everything. You are the best."

"We can't thank Dr. Borger enough for his wonderful care and expertise. From our initial visit, when Dr. Borger explained everything so clearly through surgery, through post care. We have worked with the most knowledgeable, efficient and caring team."

"Quite simply, Dr. Borger is my hero. He saved my life. I would not be writing about my experience right now without him.

I am 36 years old and have seen numerous doctors throughout the years. This was the first time in my life when I felt a doctor was truly listening to me as I explained my symptoms.

Dr. Borger took the time to review my scans again after we spoke and concluded that I would need emergency open heart surgery. This was very overwhelming, but he took the time to carefully explain the procedure and answered all of our questions.

I was able to overcome my fears knowing that I was literally in the most experienced and capable hands. No words could ever fully convey my gratitude and admiration for Dr. Borger. For anyone in need of heart surgery, take comfort in knowing that Dr. Borger and his team are truly the very best."
