Having suffered a mild MI due to atherosclerosis a the young age of 45, I needed a quadruple bypass. I have abnormally narrow coronary arteries, so stenting was not an option. Dr. Bittner worked with his excellent team at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, and with me, to plan the best approach to my surgery. He made me feel part of the process, and explained every step to me very clearly. My surgery was a great success, and I am already feeling much better than before the surgery (I am 8 weeks out). Dr. Bittner is extremely caring and empathetic, and he and his excellent team, including the Cardiac ICU nurses, made the whole scary experience a lot less stressful. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Bittner for any cardiac procedure you may need.

Dr Bittner and his team have incredible attention to detail, great bedside manner and Dr Bittner is highly skilled in CT Surgery. I am 39 and needed a mitral valve and pacemaker and was under Dr Bittners care for 2 weeks in the hospital. Everything was explained, every question answered and I knew he was looking out for my best interests at all times. This has been a rough road but with this team it has been much better than it could've been.

Dr. Bittner recently performed triple cardiac bypass surgery on a family member who had very challenging, small vascular to work with. Dr. Bittner was exceedingly patient, compassionate, and kind throughout the whole experience. He is extremely skilled, and our family will forever be grateful for him for his surgical expertise. He coordinated post-operative care to provide the best possible care for my family member who has made a truly remarkable recovery.
