    Dr. Kitten and Dr. Duvall performed Aortic Valve Replacement on my husband. They were outstanding. Very confident, personable, and able. I would recommend this team to anyone. I can not sing their praise enough. We are extremely satisfied. My husband is recovering very nicely. I thank them for saving my husbands life!

    Both my wife and I have seen Dr. Kitten over many years. He is an astounding doctor.... and his integrity and ethics outshine most people. He knows how to treat patients and keeps them informed in an understandable way of what is going on with their health. Revered by many people.

    Dr Kitten performed an aortic aneurysm graft on my mother. The graft was too small and caused circulation issues that slowly lead to the amputation of the toes on her left foot
