First I would like to extend my thanks to Dr. Ehsan and his entire team of nurses and support staff are fabulous. Second, the nurses on the fifth floor of cardiac-bridge unit are second to none. There are no words to describe how fantastic everyone is, how professional each and everyone is and how I was treated and cared for. I would like to add that Dr. Ehsan is not only a fantastic Dr. and Surgeon, but also a wonderful human being. I was cared for in such a way that I could have only imagined. All my questions and concerns were addressed in a courteous and timely manner. The Doctor and his staff went through the process and procedures with me and assured me that everything was going to be alright. I am truly grateful for the compassion and care that I received from Dr. Ehsan and all of his staff. Thank you so such for everything Gail Garvin

Dr. Ehsan explained in detail what was involved with my surgery in terms that both my wife and myself could easily understand. He made both of us feel very comfortable with his caring attitude. After the surgery he visited me regularly while in the hospital. Again explaining everything in detail in terms easily understood. His staff at the office maintains the same professionalism as he does.

I had aortic valve replacement surgery this winter. Dr. Ehsan was recommended to me by my cardiologist. He was extremely professional and caring with a good sense of humor. He explained the procedures to me clearly and put my mind to rest as much as possible. Everything went well and I am back at work. He checked in regularly during my hospital stay and checked in with my family. His entire team was excellent to work with.

I needed a quadruple bypass known as CABG. I did not have a surgeon so reached out for a referral from the hospital staff. Dr. Ehsan has a very calm demeanor and he radiated a high level of professionalism. I made an excellant choice. Thank you

I had aortic valve replacement with minimally invasive open heart surgery. There were no complications during the surgery or during my recovery and I was back at work in six weeks. I am fully recovered less than six months after surgery in better health than I have been in years. Dr. Ehsan and his entire team were extremely professional, accessible and caring during the entire surgical experience.

After my initial consultation with Dr. Ehsan, I felt confident having him perform my triple bypass surgery. My post surgery and recovery validated my confidence in Dr. Ehsan.

I was in need of an aortic valve replacement last spring. My cardiologist recommended Dr. Ehsan and he did not disappoint. He was extremely professional yet warm and caring. Not only did the surgery go extremely well but he was very specific and detailed when answering all of my questions or concerns. I felt assured that my recovery would go well after his excellent work and follow up with me post surgery. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Dr, Ehsan!

Dr. Ehsan was clear and candid in discussing the benefits and risks of heart of surgery with my wife and me. And he rearranged his schedule in order to accommodate some overseas travel we had previously committed to doing. He was available each day in the hospital after surgery to answer questions. We are very satisfied with his knowledge and with his communication with us.
