If not for his calm demeanor and honest solution to my severe aortic stenosis, which i knew nothing about, no symptoms, no shortness of breast or chest pain, I am here today seven days after the surgery and enjoying this Thanksgiving with a great deal to be thankful for.

Dr herskowitz did a aortic valve replacement ×2 as the st jude valve became covered in vegetation. I now have had a tissue valve for over 15 yrs and even now through special pics from others they are amazed at his work. If it wasnt for my zipper scar they say they wouldnt even know. Im grateful to this man and may need him again here in the future .

1 month ago my dad had a TAVR procedure with Dr. Herskowitz at Broward General Medical Center. From the first office visit to when he went home to follow up; Dr. Herskowitz was extremely professional, caring, and answered all our questions. We are very happy and my dad is doing very well.

My father had open heart surgery with Dr. Herskowitz several months ago and I wanted to express my gratitude and thank him for all that he did to restore my dad to health. I appreciate the time he took to explain everything and answer our questions about the surgery. Most doctors do not spend the time explaining what will happen so the family knows and is comfortable with the surgery. I am telling all my friends if they need heart surgery to call Dr. Herskowitz. He is an excellent surgeon.

Dr. Herskowitz recently operated on my mother. She had a difficult aortic valve surgery. She did amazingly well after sugery and went home after 6 days. He could not have more thoughtful and caring about explaining the procedure including all the risks.He spent a lot of time with myself and the family making sure we were well informed of what mom needed.

aweful individual. was looking to capitalize on the elderly.. told my dad a sales job and when it was over, he did nothing but made it worse.... he didnt take the time to discuss the pros and cons of the surgery... instead he used the famous line, i will open your chest and FIX EVERYTHING! well he didnt.. instead, he had my dad for 6 hours, only replaced his aortic valve, could NOT fix the blocked arteries, and then tells us my dad's kidneys wont be functional anymore... what a liar...

Dr Herskowitz and his staff gave me the best treatment ever by a medical staff. I am home recovering from open heart surgery performed by Doctor Herskowitz. I was explained every part of my procedure and all my questions were answered. My procedure was shown on his website, a short version. During the video, Dr Herskowitz explained what his and his staff were doing. He was very clear this was a group effort and it took many doctor's to make this procedure successful. I recommend Dr Herskowitz.
