What People Say About Dr. David Affleck, MD

Dr. Affleck first saw me as an inpatient at St.Marks Hospital. After I was released I visited with him in his office. He remembered my case and discussed the medical outcome I had experienced. He was very personable and easy to talk with. Although I needed no further cardiac intervention at the time, he told me to feel free to contact him if I had questions. I felt he was concerned and he was easy to talk with.

My experience was awful. Had 3 encounters. 1). In office, I was sent to him for poss lung cancer and need for biopsy. I learned more about his sons LDS mission. Referred me to a pulmonologist who did a biopsy but needed CV surgeon to do the deeper one. 2). 2nd biopsy set up with affleck, his partner showed the day of surgery, no affleck. 3). Affleck came to the ICU and told me “you have lung cancer, stage 3 Or 4. Sent me to another floor. Then was mad I hadn’t gone home. Said ins will deny

I'd suffered with severe symptoms brought on by Atrial-fibrillation for nine years, and after three internal ablations, I received the bad news that I was one of the few that procedure didn't help. The electrophysiologist said I'd have to learn to live with it. However, in January 2010, I underwent mini-maze surgery with Dr. Affleck at Ogden Regional, and he successfully eliminated the problem. I have not had another recurrence! Thank you, Dr. Affleck, for giving me my life back!

Dr. Affleck makes me feel like I'm his only patient and is not in a rush to get to his next patient. He has a sense of humor and puts me at ease, while explaining exactly what he's doing.
