1 Patient Review for
Dr. Bajona

"My surgeon, Dr. Pietro Bajona, is one of the most wonderful people that I have met in my life. When he talked with me the first time, he was modest and respectful. Virtually, he explained the procedure in a clear manner. After, he told me what he did and how he replaced my mitral valve. At the same time he showed me that valve and how it effected my health. After that, he told me what will happen to me and the steps I should follow to complete the treatment.

Right now, I am in a stable situation and happy because Doctor Bajona helped me to recover and rid of my experience of being weak and frustrated. In conclusion, I keep thanking God for sending Dr. Bajona, so I can feel more strong and healthy."
