Dr. Dearani is one of the best physicians I have ever come across, not toe mention probably one of the smartest people I have ever met. He performed an open heart surgery to repair a very large ASD, and he was fabulous from both a patient and tactical standpoint. if you need heart surgery Dr. Dearani is one you want performing the surgery. Thank you Dr. Dearani. Respectfully,

Dr. Dearani has been an incredible ray of hope for our family. From his bedside manner to his level of expertise, Dr. Dearani is an absolute God-send. Daily, we thank the lord for Dearani's gifts and abilities. Without the two of them, I'm not sure where our family would be. All I do know is that we would not be in as good of a place as we are now. Heart-felt thank you to the Lord and Dr. Dearani for helping our family thrive.
