Dr Answini performed coronary by pass surgery on June 13, 2019. He instsalled 5 by pass arteries. I think he saved my life. I feel he did an outstanding job. I have had no problems with heart since surgery. Also, he is very easy to work with. He has an outgoing personality which helps to get you thru the procedure.

Dr Answini reviewed my case and ask his associates if they had ever seen a case such as mine and if so how would they proceed. My case will go before a board group of surgeons they will discuss it and make the appropriate recommendations. I have complete confidence that my case recommendations will have the best practice and outcome.

We went to Dr. Answini since he had done a Mitral valve replacement for my sister-in-law in 2012 and he did an awesome job. No issues till now. But the fact that I am writing this review now is that we recently did a Open heart surgery for my husband this may 2017 and he literally saved my husband's life. We knew from the long hours of surgery that it was a a very complicated surgery and Dr. Answini and his staff, did a wonderful job of saving my husbands live. Thanks a lot. Best doctor eve

We have never met a more compassionate, caring or thoughtful physician - ever. His bedside manner compares to no one and he literally spent hours with us at the bedside during the course of my husband's 6 day hospitalization. You simply don't find that any more. He saved my husband's life and for that I will be eternally grateful.
