Dr. Nicolato is a Rock star! My daughter had a serious bacterial infection only a month ago to the day and Dr. Nicolato took excellent care of her. She repaired and replaced two heart valves. She updated us on all the details prior to the surgery. She had a nurse to call with updates during the operation and she even sent me a photo from her personal phone number, showing what the vegetation on the valve looked like prior to its removal. Even though, VCU Health had a strict "NO" visitation policy because of Covid-19, I was granted permission to spend the night prior to surgery with the urging of Dr. Nicolato. Syd's health is still being carefully monitored by the doctor even though we live almost two hours away. Sydney is feeling great with the help of the Good Doctor.
