Dr. Ota

"Dr. Ota was very informative with me. He didn't rush through the appointment. He made sure all of my questions were answered. I am very pleased."

-- Kevin Caraballo, Mitral Valve, Tricuspid Valve, Valve Repair, Valve Replacement, 04/12/2021

"Dr. Ota is a kind, compassionate surgeon who explained everything both before and after surgery, which helped me and my family feel less afraid and more confident about the procedure to replace my aortic valve via open heart surgery.

Dr. Ota's medical credentials, or course, are unparalleled but his demeanor and bedside manner are what helped me me through a very difficult and scary time. I couldn't recommend him more highly."
