    I am a 51 year old male that needed aortic valve replacement. I felt that Dr. Greason being of similar age could better relate to me. He is friendly, straight forward. He will not talk down to you. There are videos of him online. I traveled 275 miles to have him perform my surgery and of course made the right choice. Dr. Greason's team that he surrounds himself is top-notch.
