"My valve repair went very well! Dr. Mick took great care to ensure my complete recovery from my first visit to throughout my stay at the Cleveland Clinic. She answered all of my questions and explained the surgery in detail. And minutes before the surgery, she took the time to introduce me to her surgical team. I knew I mattered and I wasn't just another procedure to her. To me, that was the most important detail."

"I am a 75-year-old female competitive swimmer. Four months ago, Dr. Stephanie Mick repaired my mitral valve during a complicated surgery (no fault of hers!). During my 23 days stay at Cleveland Clinic, she visited me often and conferred with other doctors who were brought in. She kept me informed as to what was going on. I was pleased with her and am sending her the gold medal that I won last weekend swimming in the State Senior Games which qualified me for the National Senior Games next summer. I highly recommend Dr. Mick. "

"Dr. Mick’s professionalism, charm, warmth and patient skills were evident from our first moments together. She clearly and patiently answered all our questions, allayed our concerns and walked us through the procedure. Dr. Mick quickly appreciated my focus on post-surgery recovery and return to vigorous endurance sports, allowing us to laugh together. As a result, she validated my confidence in her skills before the procedure. We met several times before I was released, with her caring approach and gentle hand always evident. My recovery from surgery was swift and within a few weeks I was back doing everything I love to do. After returning home, any questions I sent to her were quickly answered by her and the extraordinary care team which works around her. Dr. Mick is both a wonderful surgeon and a wonderful person."

"Stephanie Mick and the staff of the Cleveland Clinic are the best! I've never experienced the level of medical professionalism displayed by these people. From the person who checks you in, right up to Dr. Mick, all are caring and very attentive to your every need. Nothing is overlooked!!! Prior to my experience, I would not have believed a large medical facility could operate at this level of efficiency..."like a well oiled machine", while providing the highest level of personal care. I never felt "rushed" with any of the medical staff or Dr. Mick.

I had Median sternotomy Mitral Valve repair surgery 12/07/16. By 12/11/16 I was easily walking one mile/day. When I saw my Echo Cardiogram four days post op., I was amazed at the valve function and how neat and clean the repair looked. Dr. Mick is truly a miracle worker! "

"Dr. Mick did a wonderful job. When my local hospital recommended a valve replacement because my valve leakage was considered severe, I contacted the CLEVELAND CLINIC and Dr. Mick was the elected surgeon for me . Dr. Mick advised me of all the pros and cons with this operation and the possibility of having to have a valve replacement. Dr. Mick was able to repair my valve with no problems , her bedside manner was wonderful, she checked on me periodically as did her fellow associates. I am doing good, i feel good and currently on no medication. Dr. Mick gave me the best birthday present that a person could ask for...their life back with no problems and no medication. Thank you Dr. Mick"

"Dr. Mick was outstanding. She saved my life. I had endocarditis staphoritus which had destroyed my aortic and mitral valves and damaged the tricuspid. She did emergency surgery (to replace the aortic and mitral valves and repair the tricuspid) because my valve leakage was critical and without valve replacement the prognosis was I would not live. I have no memory of being in Cleveland Clinic because I was so very sick.

After I was done in rehab, I traveled back to Cleveland to meet and say thanks to the people who cared for me and to meet Dr. Mick and to thank her (she gave me a big hug). I had some heart testing done (ultra sound I think) and they said it was the best valve replacement job they had ever seen. No leakage at all which they said was unusual. So,if you are considering heart surgery I highly recommend Dr. Mick and Cleveland Clinic. PS. I am doing very good."
