Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Halkos performed my minimally invasive robotic mitral valve repair in Dec. 2016. He took plenty of time explaining the procedure to my wife and I. His office staff was very friendly and professional. Appointments were always kept and reasonably on time. He performed the surgery at St. Joseph's Emory hospital. The nursing staff and overall care there was excellent. Overall I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Halkos and his office.

Dr. H repaired my husband's mitral valve in 2012. There was extensive bleeding and my husband was in an induced coma on life support for weeks. Dr. H was always willing to explain things to me on my level. He was down to earth, totally unpretentious, and he saved my husbands life. We love him.

Thank you so much. Took time on a holiday weekend to see my wife for a consult and schedule CABG surgery. By-pass surgery is scary at best but you and your staff made it a great life experience. From the time I met you I felt confident that you were the one to take care of my wife of 30 plus years. Not to be weird, but every morning I wake up with my wifeI I think of you. No words can express my gratitude. The nurses are right. You are the best! Thank You!
