"I will be forever grateful to Dr. Shemin. He is kind, attentive, he listened to what I wanted and took time to find out who I am and what is important to me. A true miracle worker. I had been dreading having to have my valve replaced for many years. Dr. Shemin and his entire staff put me at ease from the first phone call. Who knew heart surgery could be a graceful process! Thank you!"
