What People Say About Dr. Harkness Floten, MD
Reply
We came from eastern WA area to see Dr Floten at the Starr cardiac group, due to the high recommendations that we had heard! He was kind enough to see my husband on Sunday, a quadruple bypass was scheduled for the next morning. He was reassuring, confident and answered our questions! We appreciated our experience with his team, his PA Elizabeth, and Dr Flurney! My husband’s surgery went well and he’s recovering ahead of the curve we are grateful for the skill of this team!

On 06/01/16 Dr Floten performed a mitral valve replacement, an aortic valve replacement, and a double coronary artery bypass graft on me. He is an incredible surgeon with a terrible bedside manner.
