I had an extra heart beat. My mytro valve was ballooned like an old type parachute, was leaking & ready to fail. Dr. Gott repaired that valve and this stopped the extra beats. He probably extended my life by many years. Dr. Gott is a very talented, kind & caring physician. He came highly recommended by other doctors and rightfully so.

I had Heart Bypass Surgery 4 weeks ago and I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Gott and his staff. I was pleasantly surprised to find a surgeon that actually cares, its easy to find cold professionals but not Compassionate Professionals. Dr. Gott is a cut above, He is patient, kind, not in a hurry, he took time to answer I and my wife's questions and reassure us both. Plus he did great work. His staff of nurses and his PA Lindsay are outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend him. Great Experience!

My husband had to have a heart valve replaced and we found Dr. Gott to be a very wonderful doctor. He took time to explain everything to my husband and myself before the surgery as well as to give me, our children and Kenneth's sibling all the information and time that we needed after the surgery was done. We were very pleased with Dr. Gott and his staff, we can not say enough about them. My husband and I would love to express to Dr Gott and his team our thanks for the wonderful care.
