"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."

"Dr. Bajona met with me before surgery, after surgery and during recovery in the hospital. He was kind and patient and gave me far more time than I expected to discuss the procedures and results. He helped to ease my fears, listened intently to my questions and I never felt rushed.

Nearly 60 days has passed since surgery, I've had no complications from the surgery and am of the opinion it was entirely successful. I would highly recommend Dr. Bajona. "

"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."

"Dr. Bajona and his team were amazing. I could not have asked for a more capable surgeon. My initial visit was for a 2nd opinion regarding my dx and recommendations of possible resolutions available to me. Dr. Bajona was very pleasant, caring, prompt and professional. He provided me with much helpful information when describing the entire process.

After the cardiac team had reviewed my case, I received a personal phone call from Dr. Bajona, not a staff member, providing the team, and his, recommendation, including why the team, and he, did not recommend other options. I was not rushed into making a decision and Dr. Bajona answered all of my questions, as well as provided me with how to reach him should I have any additional questions after our phone call. I originally selected Dr. Bajona for a 2nd opinion because of his background and credentials, but selected him for my surgeon because of all the additional positive attributes he brought in addition to his skill.

I have a very high level of fear when it comes to needles, etc. In fact, I left my pre-op visit in tears due to fear when I learned I would be briefly put on a vent after surgery. Dr. Bajona and his team were comforting and reassuring, which got me through the surgery. I am thankful that I was asked if I wanted a detail or summary of what to expect on the day of surgery and during recovery. I asked for the details, which enhanced my initial fear but it actually helped me to understand what was going on from start to finish when the day of surgery arrived. I knew exactly what was happening and it helped me to stay calm. My surgery went very well and my outcomes have been wonderful.

During my recovery at home, Dr. Bajona & his team were available to answer any questions or concerns and returned all of my calls promptly. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Dr. Bajona. I feel very blessed and filled with gratitude that Dr. Bajona was available to perform my procedure. If you are looking for a cardiac surgeon in the Pittsburgh area that is highly skilled and cares about his patients, please consider Dr. Bajona."

"Dr. Bajona is compassionate and I was comfortable with him at the first meeting. He's intelligent and extremely concerned. He answered all of my questions. He visited me every day in the hospital, always asking if there was anything I needed. Dr. Bajona literally saved my life as my valve was almost completely closed. I have recommended Dr. Bajona to anyone who asks about my surgery."

"Dr. Bajona explained the procedure and I received a pig valve along with an aortic aneurysm repair. All went perfect. He is very friendly and I liked his bedside manner. He answered all questions to help take my fear away. I highly recommend this doctor. I feel great. He truly is a remarkable talented physician and I would not hesitate to go to him again."

"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."
