Patient Comments (1)
in Starke, Fl |
The best cardiovascular surgeon in our opinion. Travelled 6 hrs to see this world renown surgeon feeling very fortunate he is in Florida. My mom needed aortic valve replacement. Even though the pre testing revealed a rare acquired bleeding disorder, Dr Dorman sought expert opinions and used the most current therapeutic treatment pre, during and post surgery to bring her through successfully. It's been 5.5 years and even though the valve may need to be replaced in future, we think he was God sent
