About Dr. Patrick Vargo,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Patrick Vargo and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 2013. Cleveland Clinic performs more than 4,500 heart surgeries each year. All Cleveland Clinic cardiac surgeons complete between 300-400 cardiac cases per year. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is that I enjoy being a heart surgeon because it gives me the opportunity to help patients get through a difficult time. Heart disease can be frightening and overwhelming. It is a privilege to treat these conditions and see patients return to feeling better and living a healthy life.

"Dr. Vargo saved my life!!!! He is very caring and will explains everything to you. He has an awesome bedside manner. He just doesn't care about you, he cares about your family.
My first meeting with him, my daughter needed a note for her work to be my caregiver. He wrote the letter, printed it, got the letter and gave it to her. Not a lot of doctors do that today. He takes as much time as you need to explain what you will go through, what he is going to do and your recovery afterwards. He calmed my nerves and made me feel reassured.
My daughter was 21 and when I was out of surgery he talked to her and explained everything in simple terms. Made her feel at ease. You can tell by talking to Dr. Vargo that he was meant to be a heart surgeon and that it is in his blood. Thank God for Dr. Patrick Vargo because I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him!!"
