Dr. Jeevanandam

"Dr. Jeevanandam and his whole team have been nothing but amazing. Dr. Jeevanandam is a fantastic surgeon. I was super nervous about my first ever surgery and that was for my heart. It have been 3 weeks since my surgery and my recovery is going great. Dr. Jeevanandam is god sent for myself and I’m sure for many others as well. He understood my concerns and was extremely smart which made me feel as ease which was helpful to calm my nerves.

I also liked how his team was always available to answer questions which is very important and they have met all of my requirements for being the best healthcare providers. Thank you so much! A special thanks to Allison, Calvin, Edith, and, of course, Dr. Jeevanandam."

"Dr. Jeevanandam is an extremely competent and caring surgeon. He clearly explained the needed procedures, benefits and risks in my surgery. I had complete confidence in him going into surgery. In my recovery, in cardiac intensive care and then cardiac care, I found that he is supported by an equally competent and caring team of physicians, nurses, and other health care specialists. I left the hospital five days after surgery, and have continued to gain endurance and strength every day. I am very grateful for the care he and his "high performing team" provided to me. It is no exaggeration to state that he has extended my life, and I very much appreciate it!"
