Can’t say enough good things about him. He saved my life when my heart was punctured and I needed emergency open heart surgery. His bedside manner is pretty matter-of-fact, he tries to be as honest and straightforward as possible.

Dr. Dejene performed my fathers quad bypass just after christmas 2015. My father asked me to leave this review for him and thank Dr. Dejene for saving his life. Though complications were ran into during the surgery, causing it to last hours longer than it should have, Dr. Dejene was able to correct those complications and prevent further issues and save one of my fathers nearly fully calcified arteries. He was very compassionate yet serious about his work, and he is a completely reputable dr.

10 years ago, this man saved my life. I was 23 years old and was in a head on car accident. My aorta tore, & I needed an aortic dissection. Only 5% of these cases make it to the hospital alive. Less make it through surgery. He went through my back so I didn't end up with a scar on my chest. Even after all these years, he has called me back to assure me I wouldn't have complications during childbirth - I have you to thank for making it possible for me to have my two baby girls. May God bless you.
