Dr. Dewar operated on my husband. He did an Aortic Valve replacement. It has been only four weeks and my husband is doing marvelous. He is so personable and caring makes you feel so comfortable! I would recommend Dr. Dewar in a minute. My husband never needed any pain meds only Tylenol. He is on his way to 100% recovery. Thank you Dr Dewar for being the Dr you are!!!
