Review of Dr. Schmelzer

- in Florence, KY |

I had a heart valve replacement. Recovery was way ahead of schedule. Other than coughing, sneezing or laughing very hard, I had little to no discomfort. I followed recovery directions very well, though I felt I could do more, but still stayed on the surgeons directed path. My recovery was a great success. I highly recommend Dr. Schmelzer and the Saint Elizabeth team.

Review of Dr. Locher Jr

- in Ft Thomas, KY |

My father was admitted into St. Elizabeth ER with major blockages to his heart, and it was complicated with advanced cancer. His odds were extremely low. Thanks to Dr. Locher (and his associate Dr. Christenson, he has beaten those odds and is with us today. He is phenomenal!

Review of Dr. Ulicny II

- in Walton, KY |

Dr.Ulicny did an awesome job on my husband. He needed a triple bypass. His EF was 10 per cent and he was a high risk patient. His recovery was awesome and his EF is now up to 30 percent. Thank you Dr. Uliciny!!!!

Review of Dr. Locher Jr

-Westerville, OH |

Dr. Jim Locher gave me a new heart. I cannot convey enough gratitude for his objectivity mixed with sincere encouragement and his own self revelations. Totally scared, but I gave him my trust. I am able to write these words ... now, today, thanks to his great skills!
