What People Say About Dr. Gary Szydlowski, MD
Reply
Thirteen years ago my husband had to receive an aortic valve replacement . Dr explained everything to my husband and myself , he was so compassionate. I remember him saying he's a young man with a family and I'm going to think about how I'm going to perform this surgery . As scary as it was I prayed that God would give both of them strength to go through with it . Thank you Dr. You were great I'll always be grateful for your skill , and compassion and would recommend him to anyone, God. Bless
