I would recommend Dr. Bercow, from our first meeting he made my husband and I felt at ease. I had 2 mechanical valves replacement in January 2020, due to Rhomatic fever at an early age. He did an excellent job. My follow up care was great. Thank you Dr. Bercow.

Dr. Bercow was part of a team of Surgeons who performed a 9 Hour surgery. Dr. Bercow was excellent, sympathetic and answered any questions that I had. Dr. Bercow was absolutely outstanding. Dr. Bercow visited me daily when I was in the Hospital (St. Francis) and I can tell you between Dr. Bercow and St. Francis hospital I recovered way ahead of schedule. Absolutely the best , hands down !!!
