Excellent bedside manner, thoroughly explained my son’s VSD repair which as a 25 year old, required open heart surgery. All went well, he’s healing nicely & looks forward to a full recovery back to his normal life.

My Son has HLHS & at 4 days old Dr.Kalfa performed his first heart surgery. Everything went great. My Husband & I we’re fully informed & were kept abreast on our son’s procedure before, during, & post surgery. We are grateful for Dr.Kalfa & all of the medical staff for an amazing team work.
