He performed a 5 way bypass & replaced Aortic with a Bovine Pericardial Tissue Heart Valve for me in January, 2013. I recommend him without reservation.

One of the few surgeons that spent a large amount of time with me while in Cardio Intensive unit after my triple bypass surgery. He has extensive experience with his field and is a very interesting, involved Doctor.
