What People Say About Dr. Mehmet Cicek, MD
Dr. Cicek replaced my aortic valve in April 2018. He is an amazing surgeon, extremely professional, and was very straight forward about the options I had. He did not push me into a decision but rather laid out the risks of the various options and let me make the decision. He was able to perform my Aortic valve replacement via a mini sternotomy and I was out of the hospital in 4 days!! Mayo Clinic has the BEST surgeons and Dr. Cicek is certainly living up to this standard of excellence.
