24 Patient Reviews for Dr. Jeevanandam

"My Mom was operated on by Dr. Jeevanandum and his team. He is simply amazing. He communicated to me before the surgery was set up and came to talk to me after to let me know it was successful. The team also gives updates during surgery. He also checked on her regularly and am I most grateful for how thorough and knowledgeable he is. He operates on those that other hospitals deem too "high-risk". He credits God and is a brilliant surgeon. I thank God every day he took my Mom's case and is humble, gracious and most of all - simply the best! I can't thank God enough for leading us to Dr. J and for performing the surgery on my Mom."

"I call Dr. Jeevanandam a Saint! He's the best Dr. I know. Caring. Thoughtful. A blessing. Gave me another chance at life with my successful "heartplant" August 25, 2016. I took ill in early 2016 with congestive heart failure. The NuPulse iVAS Ballom pump was implanted in me July 28 by Dr. Jeevanandam. Patient 004 in the world with this incredible device! Dr. j is God-sent. Never been sick a day in my life other than a cold and flu like systems...but God allowed this incredible Dr. to save my life with the right heart Aug 25."
