"Dr. Bolling and his staff are highly experienced in mitral valve repair/replace. I would recommend him and his team to anyone with valve issues. He and his team took the time to explain things and followed up with me each day I was in the hospital. They also followed up with me at home. His nurses and team are the BEST! "

I was referred to Dr. Bolling at the University of Michigan hospital. From the minute he walked into my room, I felt at PEACE making the decision to CHEAT on my cardiologist and have my surgery!
I let my mom meet Dr. Bolling before actually scheduling my surgery. With her being a Registered Nurse, she approved him hands down!
