This guy is the best of the best. Seriously if you are lucky enough to be able to see him then you have nothing to worry about. He was actually able to REPAIR my aortic valve. Pretty much unheard of. There are only a few doctors in the country that probably could have done what he did. Honestly, he's the ONLY person I'd ever go see again......ever. No matter where we was in the country I would fly to him.

After an electrocardiogram showed abnormalities and a catheterization confirmed that I had significant blockages in the blood vessels to my heart, my cardiologist referred me to Dr. Kerendi. My personal research (due diligence) assured me that Dr. Kerendi was an excellent cardiovascular surgeon. From the initial conference to the surgery and aftercare, I have been impressed with the doctor's skill and manner in treating me. My recovery has been without incidence or worry.
