I thought pickup trucks and Heart Surgery were a "guy thing"....Boy Howdy was I wrong! Just about the time that I needed the best Cardiac Surgeon in the world, in walks a 115-pound Angel and takes control of my life. Never in my life have I been so blessed as I was that day. No BS with this...more

1000 miles from home and needing bypass surgery, to find a Doctor with the talent and personality of Dr. Paape was a true blessing. Great care to me and quality information to my family will always be in my memory. She is the best.
