Doctor, Maxwell My name is Jay Mullendore. In or around June, 2009. You had preformed surgery on me. What is called a Aortic Dissection / Freestyle. This procedure saved my life, Thank you.

Outstanding in every aspect. I had an aortic root replacement and he removed an aortic aneurism. Very business like and professional. While I pray I never need his services again, I would use his services without delay.

My father just had a triple bypass w/a valve replacement about a month ago. Dr. Maxwell was so understanding about our fears since my father is 81 years old. He explained what he was going to do and what to expect as he recovered. Not being in the medical field(I am a teacher) he explained everything to me in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend him without question. I would also like to extend my thanks to him for the care he showed my ENTIRE family.

Dr Maxwell took care of my husband's lung problems and did surgery on New Year's Day. My husband was having trouble with his lung collapsing, 3 times in December 2014. He was instrumental in getting us 5 more months together. Dr Maxwell also did surgery on the veins in my left leg. It was done in the office and I have had no more pain in the leg. I consider both of these procedures a success. I would have Dr Maxwell for my surgeon when ever I needed a surgeon with his expertise.
