Came into Bringham and Woman’s to repair a leaking valve. Found out I had to have a bypass due to two clogged arteries. One was 90%and the other 70% Dr. Pelletier was incredible. He sat down with my wife and I for 45 minutes answering all questions and concerns. He also visited me after the operation to go over the next steps in post surgery. He was able to fix my leaking valve and did an amazing job on the bypass. He is a pioneer In valve replacement and repair

I found Dr Pelletier patient and reassuring. He thoroughly explained the procedure and what I could expect post surgery. He took the time to answer all my questions and I went away from our initial discussion with a confidence that I'm certain aided in my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Pelletier.

Once it was determined I had a bad mitral valve, Dr Mark Pelletier was recommended as the surgeon. Having Dr. Pelletier as my surgeon was one of the best things that happened to me. He spent a considerable amount of time explaining what was happening and what the surgical options were. The difficult 6-hour surgery went extremely well and the follow up process was world class. I feel fortunate to have had Dr. Pelletier for my surgery.

Dr. Pelletier listens. He explains complicated subjects with ease. I made a decision at all our meetings with confidence. He is so calm and radiates peacefulness even when sharing news about complications. During my procedure, that turned out to be replacements of two valves and a repair of an aneurysm, he was able to meet with my family to assure them that all was well. Post op he met with me every day and reviewed the progress made. I was very well prepared for discharge. For mother’s day this year my daughter bought a double frame. On one side was a picture of my grandson “who stole my heart” and on the other side was a photo of Dr. Pelletier “who gave me a new heart”. (Sorry but I’ve since replaced the good doctor with another picture of my darling little Luke): Just a testament that a doctor can heal, but a physician heals the soul.

I was having a sudden cardiac issue and Dr. Pelletier for e into his schedule within 2 weeks. His expertise provided me with coronary by-pass surgery even though I was a patient on dialysis and who had previous heart surgery. He was very reassuring and kind. Because of his excellent knowledge, he did the by-pass I would not have pain on dialysis. He is a triple life-saver.

My experience with Dr> Pelletier was outstanding. He is a courteous, caring, honest and extremely informative when he took the time to explain what was wrong with my heart and how he planned to repair it through surgey. The follow up appointment was great and again he was genuinely concerned with my healing process. I highly recommend!

My wife and I met Dr Pelletier on 8/23/18! We were immediately impressed by his warmth and sincerity as well as that one extremely important characteristic, you want to see in your Heart Surgeon, CONFIDENCE! He said" I know this seems like a really big thing to you but it's is not for me I do them every day"! I had my surgery on 10/3 went home on 10/9 walked .52 miles on 10/20, 1.62 on 10/24 & and now 3 in 1hr- FitBit Ionic. I’m very thankful, this Holiday Season for Dr. Marc Pelletier &BW

Exceptional Dr. The rare surgeon who has a pleasant approachable "bedside" manner. But to be honest, even if he didn't, it would not matter. Very skilled.

Dr. Pelletier performed a triple bypass procedure for me in August. My results were excellent. My entire experience was excellent from pre-surgery consultation, through surgery to recovery and post-surgery follow-up.

Dr. Pelletier performed a triple bypass heart surgery on me in August, 2018. He has an air of confident professionalism about him and was helpful in answering questions and explaining the procedure.

I can honestly say that Dr. Pelletier saved my life.
