In March of 2015 Dr. Puskas performed a quintuple bypass on me. Saved my life. He has my most profound gratitude. Ronald Antretter Glendale NY

An amazing Doctor and a caring , approachable man. Saved my 80 year old husbands life. One operation, 1valve replaced, 2 valves repaired, bypass..., pacemaker 7 hours in surgery. My husband is healthy and vital today! Thank you!

At age 77 I had extensive heart surgery performed by Dr. Puskas at Mt Sinai-Beth Israel in October 2015. Aortic valve replacement, triple bypass, and ascending aorta graft. I found him to be caring and informative, but most important two cardiologists since then have told me at the time of annual check-ups what an outstanding job he did. Thks Dr. Puskas.

I was reading an article about the On-X heart valve on a Sunday morning. It listed Dr. Puskas as the leader of a study at Emory, here in Atlanta. Found his info on the Emory website, sent him an e-mail, and GOT A RESPONSE IN 20 MINUTES--ON A SUNDAY MORNING!! Thus began my relationship with not only the finest doctor I have ever met, but one of the finest human beings I know. He did my surgery in September of 2013, and we have corresponded regularly ever since. God Bless you Dr. Puskas.

This is a man who cares deeply for his patients and want to see them well. Dr Puskas did surgery on my husband 9 months ago and I can say that there isn't another doctor I trust more. He is not only a brilliant surgeon but a caring person. He was available that we could ask any questions and he always had a kind word to say to you. You were never treated as a bother. I would recommend Dr Puskas to anyone who needs his service. Without any reservation.

Dr. Puskas was miraculous for me. I was operated for a double bypass on Friday 14th August and was sleeping at home, in my own bed on Monday 17th August, 2015!!! I feel absolutely blessed to have found Dr. Puskas and his extraordinary knowledge of off pump surgery I feel was instrumental in the life changing success of my operation. I write this on the 23rd April, 2016 (8 months after my surgery) and can confirm that it is hard for me to even remember that I've had open heart surgery! Thank You
