7 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Bajona

"Dr. Bajona is not only a gifted surgeon but a genuinely good man. His kindness, his willingness to answer questions, his patience, his friendliness, and his expertise all made what was a nerve-racking experience much less so for me as well as for my wife. Should the need arise, I would not hesitate to recommend him to a family member or a friend as my surgery and recovery went extremely well."

-- Thomas Miscik, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, 01/31/2022

"Dr. Bajona is very patient and answered all of my questions. He explained the procedure well beforehand. I could not be happier with his work on me and his care afterwards. I had my surgery on a Monday morning and I was walking the halls of the hospital the next day. On Friday morning, I walked out of the hospital and went home. I would recommend him to anybody who needed heart surgery."
