5 Patient Reviews for Dr. Ryan

"Dr. Ryan could not have been more understanding of my fears and caring throughout my hospital stay. I appreciate the great surgical result and his great bedside manner. So many surgeons are great at what they do from a surgical standpoint but Dr. Ryan makes it evident that he cares about the whole person. Thank you so very much from our whole family."

-- Linda Sells, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 07/27/2016

"Absolutely the best care from a great team, I followed their instructions and was faithful to my efforts to get up and moving after surgery which resulted in discharge from hospital after 5 days. Incredible! Still a long haul to get back to 100% but after six weeks I am substantially stronger and much improved. Very grateful!"
