Review of Dr. Ganzel

- in Owensboro, KY |

I am so thankful for Dr Ganzel and the staff at UofL Hospital. I suffered an aortic dissection in late November. Went to our local hospital where they found the problem. Was immediately life flighted to Louisville where I underwent a six hour procedure with a 1 in 4 chance of survival. From what I hear from family, Dr Ganzel and the hos[ital staff kept family informed constantly. This man didn't just perform surgery, he saved my life. Without him I wouldn't be here. I thank God for him.

Review of Dr. Cheng

-Louisville, ky |

When this man treated my husband before lvad surgery he took all hope from us. His bedside manner left us all in tears to include me husband. We sought another surgeon and now 3 yrs later the lvad is working fine. My husband left the in 20 days after the surgery. During those 20 days Dr Cheng had the nerve to come in my husband hospital room and say, "I seen you made it thru", my husband said yep and Dr. Cheng walked out. You might be a great surgeon but you need to fix your manner.
