in Kalispell, MT |
Dr. Dibos was my rock during a very unexpected heart surgery. WhenI met him, I knew he would do his best by me and he did. He says "we" and not "I" so I immediately felt like part of a team He reassured me from the moment I was informed that I needed surgery until the day I left the hospital. I was visited at least once a day, asked how I was feeling, if I had any questions, and cheered on in his gentle, upbeat way. Bless you, Dr. Dibos. You have a fan for life!

A great surgeon and excellent individual. I have never had a surgeon or doctor who seemed so devoted and genuine in his relationship with a patient. He did a 5 bypass operation on me with great success. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Dibos put my wife and I at such ease. We were both nervous over my impending bypass surgery. He helped us understand the procedure and answered all the questions we had. Never rushed us, and helped calm our fears. He is an amazing surgeon!
Pasadena, MD |
Dr, Dibos is a very compassionate person. He performed a successful triple by-pass on our 88 year old mother. He spoke to here several times in a manner easy for her to understand so that she could make her own decision regarding the surgery. He followed up with her regularly during her recovery to enure her full return to her independent lifestyle. We are most grateful for all he has done for her. He always kept the four adult children informed of her status.

This man is one of the most compassionate, caring Doctors you will ever meet. He gave me comfort and attention at a time of great stress. His knowledge and expertise are beyond compare! Never visited his office because he treated my husband in the hospital in an emergency situation.
in Parkville, MD |
Five minutes with Dr. Dibos and knew I was I good hands. His beside manner is only exceeded by his gifted hands as a surgeon. Once you have been under his care you want him to be a life time friend as well as recommend him to others for his experience, comfort and confidence that he projects.
