Dr. Kaiser replaced my aorta essentially, as I had an ascending aortic aneurysm. I was very worried about it and questioning; even looked for other doctors, but in the end felt Dr. Kaiser and the Vanderbilt team were the best. I was right and am now at 1 year since my surgery. Great Doctor.

Dr. Kaiser saved my son's life. He is very attentive and kind. He has helped schedule my son's visits for our convenience and always takes time to answer our questions. To this worried mom, he was a GODSEND!

My son was seen by Dr Kaiser after being sent to Vandy Univ.Medical Center via Life Flight. He and Dr Danter explained everything to us that would be done on that night and before surgery was done in the next few days. I am so grateful to them and all off the surgeons Nurses and all the Very Very nice Staff. I have never seen so many nice people in one hospital. I just can't tell it all how much they have shown they really cared for us. Thank You, Thank You A Million Times Over.
