I was med-evac from Guam to CA in Oct. 2012 and needed an open heart surgery for an aortic valve replacement. Dr. Gheissari and his team did an outstanding job! He also gave me a heart pillow and drew a picture of where the valve was located and signed it. Thank you Dr. Gheissari!!!!

Very grateful for an amazing professionalism and incredible skills. Dr. Gheissari saved my fathers life by performing two complicated surgeries on the same day. Great personality and caring attitude towards his patients.

i was running errands one afternoon when I experienced severe chest pain and shortness of breath. I checked into an Emergency Room in downtown LA at Good Samaritan Hospital. Less than4 hours later I was being wheeled into the operating room for open heart surgery. Dr. GhessairI did an amazing job and performed my operation without going through a heart lung machine and neither did I need a transfusion. I did so well postoperatively, I was discharged on the 3rd day. Now I feel 20 years younger.
