Patient Review of Dr. Patrick Rudersdorf

"Dr. Rudersdorf saved my life. I felt peace from the moment I met him."

-- April Westbrook, heart valve surgery patient

"I am a retired interventional cardiologist who suffered a massive pulmonary embolism on November 2, 2019. Quite simply Dr. Rudersdorf saved my life performing an emergency open chest embolectomy.

I am no stranger to dealing with cardiac surgeons and I was extremely impressed with his humanity and skill. One year later I am enjoying life with no sequela in a vigorous retirement. Thank you Patrick!"

-- William Groh, Pulmonary Valve, Median Sternotomy, 11/02/2019
