I found my relation with Dr. Hahn to be extremely satisfactory. Dr. Hahn was brief and to the point in describing my condition and choices before me. The resultant aortic valve replacement by catheter went perfectly. My condition is remarkably improved. I would recommend Dr. Hahn to anyone requiring heart surgery.

Dr. Hahn's staff was friendly and accommodating. There was an issue with their location so I was late to my appointment. They did not require that I reschedule and even fit me in the same day to have an echo done. Dr. Hahn spent more than ample time with me going over my status and plan for moving forward. I found him to be quite warm, knowledgeable and approachable. I was very impressed with both Dr. Hahn and his staff!!

Dr. Hahn is an outstanding surgeon. He performed triple by-pass surgery on my heart in 1998. A recent catheterization showed the by-passes to be almost as good as they were when he did the surgery. He is also very good at explaining your condition and how he plans to correct the problem as well as what to expect after the surgery. Dr. Hahn takes the time to answer and explain any questions concerning your specific situation.

I met Dr. Hahn in the recovery room following a Heart Cath procedure that indicated that I needed a bypass operation. His professional manner helped calm my fears as he assured me that the operation was routine. At my request, Dr. Hahn performed the surgery just days later on what would have been his "on-call status" day off. I cannot thank him enough for that. Most importantly, 3 weeks later, I am feeling amazing well. The operation was a complete success. I will never forget Dr. Hahn.

I met with Dr. Hahn to consult for heart surgery. He took a lot of time with me to explain the options and did not rush me or make me feel like an inconvenience like other surgeons had. His demeanor is pleasing and his credentials are excellent.
