Review of Dr. Crouch


We were so fortunate to have Dr. Crouch perform my husbands open heart surgery. He did an amazing job of taking care of him and we know he saved his life. I would only go to him if this procedure is needed for any one we know. We thank him so much.....

Review of Dr. Kress

- in Burlington, WI |

Awesome, I will continue with Dr. Kress if needed. He was thorough in first consultation . Explained things very well and left you with a feeling of total confidence in taking care of the procedure. He speaks so calmly and you cant help but feel the same. When left office that day I was certain I had the right Dr. I would and will recommend him to anyone. His support team also is very. Friendly and knowledgeable . Thanks to Dr. Kress and his team!

Review of Dr. Werner

- in Union Grove |

Dr. Werner is remarkable. His bedside manner is not what I expected, but I wasn't planning on going for a beer with him. Professional doesn't even come close to covering it. If I had to do my surgery all over, it would only be him!

Review of Dr. Downey

-Milwaukee, WI |

I would recommend Dr. Downey without qualification. His skill as a surgeon, his unwavering commitment to his art and to his patients, and his standing in the St. Luke's practice and in the halls of the CVICU assure that somebody under his care will receive truly exceptional care.

Review of Dr. Crouch


Dr. Crouch is a brilliant cardiac surgeon. He is calm, to the point and extremely focused. What he lacks in interpersonal or nurturing bedside manner is covered by his Nurse Practitioners, especially Jackie, who support Dr. Crouch and become the patients and caregivers primary point person throughout the post-op/inpatient recovery period. Dr. Crouch and his team worked seamlessly, effectively , and efficiently throughout my father's recent open heart journey and beyond. No words can thank him.
