Review of Dr. Vishwanath

-

My condition required a triple bypass and valve repair. That's a lot for a man in his 80s. I was well cared for, well informed and happy with the outcome.

Review of Dr. Vishwanath

-

Wonderful Doctor ! Doctor Vishwanath replaced my aortic valve on 3/11/13. I have no further heart issues, after pretty much a lifetime of such. Today I celebrate 6 years, after surgery ! While hospitalized, he personally checked on me every day. I have never had such a caring, competent, committed, doctor in my life. I w/soon be 78 years old. S.H.

Review of Dr. Koutlas

-Sandpoint, ID |

Today is the one year anniversary of my husband's Open Heart Surgery. I've been meaning to write this for so long....so today seems the perfect day to finally do it. Words cannot express our gratitude to Dr. Koutlas. He is literally a life-safer. He is skilled, patient, caring and competent. No one expects to have Open Heart surgery. Researching the best possible surgeon is truly daunting. I hope this review helps someone who is doing just that. Dr. Koutlas is our hero.

Review of Dr. Nisco

- in Spokane, WA |

My. Husband and myself feel Dr. Nisco is an excellent surgeon, procedure that he had was explained very well and he had an excellent recovery. Although our follow up was good the day with the P.A., we called back with another question and that call was never returned to us., nor was a second phone call on Friday Aug.18 asking about a cough with occasional clear phlegm. Maybe the office staff could use a better way to keep track of phone calls. and make sure the calls are returned to patients.

Review of Dr. Reynolds

- in Spokane, WA |

This doc saved my life............I will forever be grateful. He is kind, brilliant, compassionate and has a great sense of humor....not to mention handsome-(which doesn't hurt)......I had a very rare heart tumor, I was so scared, and he operated on me and eased my mind (as much as it could be). I let him know "I was not ready to die and that I was a single mom". ...He got it...

Very good communicator and surgeon. He and his team gave me confidence going into surgery and, now, six months later, am grateful that he was my surgeon.

Review of Dr. Forrester

- in Spokane Valley, WA |

Dr. Forrester repaired a thoracic aneurysm. His care and treatment led to the rapid recovery and return to normal life. Dr. Forrester was professional and knowledgeable explaining the procedure and treatment options. I believe that Dr. Forrester’s surgical skills and knowledge are a direct result in my recovery and ability to return to work within one month.
