Review of Dr. Del Rio

- in CA |

Dr. Del Rio is a caring and experience surgeon. He did surgery on me. Before my surgery he explained everything he was going to.. it was a 4 hour surgery. He came to see me as soon as I woke up from recovery and also was there first thing in the morning the next day checking up on me. Surgery came out as planned and you can't even see my scar on my chest. I recommend Dr. Del Rio.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in San Jose, CA |

I was so happy to have found Dr. Shah when he was at El Camino Hospital in 2016. I had been recently diagnosed with heart failure and my heart doctor, Dr. Gudapati, introduced me to Dr. Shah. Dr. Shah was very thorough and spent as much time as my wife and I needed to understand the open heart procedure that was needed. He is so very professional and cared to reach out during and after surgery. He is a superior heart surgeon. I never experienced any pain or discomfort after surgery.

Review of Dr. Laudito

- |

I am a physician and my dad needed emergency bypass in a different state. I didn't know anyone at the hospital. Dr Laudito was recommend by the cardiologist who said that he would have him operate on his own family member. That is what I wanted to hear. He did a fantastic job with a very difficult surgery. We were very fortunate to have him do the surgery.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in Mill Valley, CA |

Dr Shah did my robotic mitral valve repair. He was generous with his time, gave thoughtful answers to dozens of questions, was very accessible (even by text), connected me to other of his patients, jkand helped me through the hard decision about what type of replacement would be best if needed. His surgical skill was exceptional, and he stayed in close touch through recovery and beyond. I had a choice of head of Stanford who was opposite Dr Shah in most regards. You are in good hands w Shah!

Review of Dr. Del Rio

- in Norco, CA |

Dr. Del Rio performed double bypass on my 67-year-old female heart in June, 2016. Dr. Del Rio is the most truly dedicated physician I have ever met. Doctor is direct and to-the-point, but his manner is nothing but caring and willingness to do whatever it takes to make his patients well. Dr. Del Rio truly saved my life in more ways than performing surgery. He is the only doctor, of any specialty, who I know would answer his cell phone for a patient. No words can ever thank him enough.

Review of Dr. Akhavan-Heidari

- in Wheeling, WVa |

We were extremely fortunate to have such a brilliant, kind, peaceful, hopeful and immense experienced heart surgeon saving our lives in West Virginia. His gift can never be challenged and our loss is California's gain. It was a pleasure to know the gentleman he is and a priveledge to experience the genius he is. He is the best cardiac surgeon in the country. No one could come close to his lbrilliance.

Review of Dr. Del Rio

- in Victorville, CA |

Dr. Del Rio delivered a high level of care to my mom during her stay at RCC. He is very matter of fact of what the situation is and what the solution is. She had a double bypass and aortic dissection repaired and his competence was a comfort to our family. He is not a sugar coat it type of surgeon, however, we were looking for a successful outcome, not a case of superficial warm and fuzzies. Thank you Dr. Del Rio!!

Review of Dr. Laudito

- in Pompano Beach, FL |

Dr. Laudito saved my husbands life, not once but twice (on Dec 29 and again on Dec 31 of 2015, when he was called in to do emergency open heart surgery. My husband had so much trauma during the first open heart surgery, the second surgery was 2 days later just to close his chest. May GOD bless Dr. Laudito for his skill and his passion for medicine and for his ability to deal with the families of his patients. He will forever be praised and blessed by our family for giving us back our loved one.
