"EXCELLENT SURGEON!!!! My family and I cannot express our extreme gratitude to Dr. Shemin. He is kind, explains every detail of the surgery and the recovery.

Dr. Shemin used the robotic technique for my surgery. My recovering has been amazing throughout and I had basically NO pain after the procedure and definitely during my recovery . I highly recommend Dr. Shemin!!!! He is really a "champ" when it comes to heart issues."
