      Dr. Del Rio delivered a high level of care to my mom during her stay at RCC. He is very matter of fact of what the situation is and what the solution is. She had a double bypass and aortic dissection repaired and his competence was a comfort to our family. He is not a sugar coat it type of surgeon, however, we were looking for a successful outcome, not a case of superficial warm and fuzzies. Thank you Dr. Del Rio!!

      it was very upsetting how a doctor of his profession acted towards us when my mom went in for open heart surgery, this was a very stressful procedure for my mom the dr. del rio attitude and arrogance i was shocked at the mistake he caused during surgery, he should of been more careful in placing the chest tube, but he wasn't and caused a puncture in my moms right ventrical causing my mom to loose alot of blood, which she never recovered from. his bed side manner was horrible with the family,
