Dr. Stelzer

"Dr. Stelzer is an amazingly gifted surgeon and an amazing human being! I literally owe my life to him."

-- Jeff Shebovsky, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Stelzer is the best heart surgeon. He does every thing in a professional way. His bedside manner is the best. I was very scared to travel to New York City - never mind stay and have the Ross Procedure. He deserves 100 stars. He saved my life. I was too young to leave my grandchildren. They were so happy the day I got home from Mount Sinai Hospital."
