25 Patient Reviews for Dr. Varghese

"From the first visit with Dr. Varghese, I knew we were making the right choice."

-- Joseph De Luca, heart valve surgery patient

"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Varghese. From the moment I had my consulation he put me at ease with excepting that I needed surgery. Im 42 and had a bicuspid aortic valve and a huge aortic aneurysm that needed to be repaired. He told me my different options for fixing my aortic valve and he told me about the Ross Procedure. Taking my pulmunary valve, placing it into the aortic position and having a cadaver valve placed were my pulmunary valve was. This way I have my own valve in the aortic position. After speaking with him, I knew he was the person I was going to entrust my life to without hesitation. Well I had my surgery on 10/5/17 and I am doing great. My scar is only not even 6 inches long and its healing so well and you cannot even tell i had surgery because you cant notice my scar. Anytime I had any issue Dr. Varghese and Mt. Sinai hospital staff were there to answer questions. Dr. Varghese saved my life and I am so thankful and my son is also. I will have many more years with my son and my family thanks to Dr. Varghese."
