Dr. Olenchock

"I felt better right after surgery. I feel stronger every day. Thanks Dr. Olenchock!”"

-- Wilbur Boyer, patient, heart valve surgery patient

"I had no questions going into my surgery because they explained everything so thoroughly. Dr. Olenchock made me feel at ease that I would make a full recovery. My incisions and scars healed very well and I can only say that is due to his meticulous stitching.

My post op visit with Dr. Olenchock went very well as he took time to talk me through the recovery process and go through every question I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Olenchock as a heart surgeon because he is involved with his patients and takes time. My surgery was a huge success and while I take credit for that, Dr. Olenchock was a huge part of that. "
