Dr. Mettauer performed successful bypass surgery on me in July. When visiting with him prior to the surgery date, he explained the surgery, answered all of my questions, and actually took the time to diagram the procedure for me. He followed up with me while in the hospital, and was very encouraging related to my recovery. He deeply cares for his patients, and I am blessed and grateful to have Dr Mettauer as my surgeon. His nurse Shannon is professional, well organized, and was very helpful.

Dr. Mettauer recently, 06272017, performed an open lung biopsy on me. He was present before the procedure to explain what was to happen. He answered all of our questions and we never felt rushed. After the procedure he personally checked on me and within a few days removed the tubes from my lungs with no problems whatever. He is an exceptional surgeon with a caring and professional bedside manner. He also performed heart surgery on my father in law a couple of years ago in the same manner.

Not just a great doctor but a greater human being and a true believer, thank you for the prayer before surgery that was awesome, thank you and love you forever.

Dr. Mettauer performed my lung surgery successfully, enabling me to continue and further my career as a submarine sailor in the US Navy. I could not be more grateful to have had such a talented surgeon. Dr. Mettauer and the surgery he performed are the only reason I was allowed to stay in the Submarine Force. My success could have not been accomplished if not for him. Thank you.

My family and I could not have been more pleased in our experience with Dr. Mettauer and his nurse, Shannon. His whole surgical team was the best! Dr. Mettauer not only looked at my medical reports he listened to my concerns and acted quickly to get a tumor out of my lung. He saved my life! He is very knowledgeable and professional surgeon. This is the only man I will ever let operate on my loved ones. Dr. Mettauer, thank you for being there for me! You are my guardian angel in disguise!

If we could have had one thing different in all this, it would have been to have met with Dr. Mettauer sooner. Majority of our anxiety diminished after speaking to him. His confidence was not arrogant. It was quite refreshing. He spoke to us, not at us. Everyone that we encountered told us how blessed we were to have him as our surgeon. He led us in prayer before taking my husband back for quad bypass, a man who truly knows where his talents come from.
