Dr. Accola is the best valve replacement surgeon in the country. My mother had her operation 5 years again and she is doing great. From our first appointment to the day of the surgery Dr. Accola was very passionate about the family and ensure us everything was going to be fine. My friend's wife needed a valve replacement and right away I recommended him to Dr. Accola. Best decision my family has made! Excellent Surgeon.

Dr. Accola performed an aortic valve replacement on my bicuspid valve back in 2005. I had an excellent experience for someone who was only 38 years of age and beyond scared! Found out he was my grandfathers surgeon two years earlier. I highly recommend him!

When time to replace my aortic valve, Dr. Accola was one of two surgeons recommended by my cardiologist. Dr. Accola thoroughly explained my condition, options, risks, procedure and expected course of recovery. His team is top notch. He is an expert cardiac surgeon. My aortic valve replacement and recovery were completely successful. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Accola.

Dr. Accola is simply THE BEST !!! He was kind, compassionate, and caring towards my family and I. He and his PA took the time to explain aortic valve stenosis, what our options were and what to expect before and after surgery. My family and I drove from Tampa to Orlando, to have him perform my surgery. It was the best decision to drive the distance than to stay closer to home for convenience. I recovered re-markedly well, which I attribute to the skill and expertise of Dr. Accola!

Dr Accola performed my open heart surgery on 02/15/2018. I had severe Mitral valve regurgitation and my atria was enlarged because of the severity. At the consultation Dr. Accola was comforting and took the time to explain in detail what I needed to have done. I was going to need a Mitral valve repair or replacement. Dr. Accola, his assistants, and entire staff are excellent and I would recommend them to anyone needing a cardio-thoracic surgeon. My repaired mitral valve is working perfectly.

Dr Accola performed a double bypass on me in 2016 and “shorted” both bypasses. Worst medical experience of my life.

Dr Accola is simply the BEST! He's the most caring and compassionate doctor. This wasn't my first experience with him but I wouldn't trust any other doctor. Even though there are several hospitals in my area I drove an hour and 20 minutes to have open heart surgery with him. His staff got me in quickly to see him and are an asset to his practice.
