I have nothing but accolades to say about Dr. Paul Massimiano. He is calm and reassuring, displaying an air of confidence that leaves you with no doubt about proceeding with having the surgery performed by him in late January, 2020. Imagine being so calm just minutes before being taken to the OR for my surgery. I was! I was lucky enough at my age of 70 to be an excellent candidate for the minimally invasive mitral valve repair procedure. I was discharged from the hospital 3 days after surgery, felt great, and was able to walk on my own. When I got home my family was surprised to see how well I was doing. They said they would have never known that I had surgery. My recovery continues to go well. When I saw Dr. Massimiano 2 weeks post surgery /10 days after discharge, he said I was doing fabulously! There are very few cardiac surgeons, only 25% in the USA, who specialize in the minimally invasive approach to mitral valve repair. Once you master the art of mitral valve repair, the card

Dr. Massimiano installed a mechanical Aorta Valve in1996. Recently I developed an Aortic Aneurysm. It was a no brainer to call Dr Massimiano again. He saw me immediately and it was a very reassuring and refreshing experience. When Doc repaired my aneurysm, he replaced the mechanical valve and corrected the other issues. Dr. Massimiano is definitely "The Man with The Plan". I'm still here to testify.

In July 2011, Dr. Massimiano performed minimally invasive Mitral Valve repair on my heart. With his expertise, he was able to repair the valve, instead of replacing it. The 1.5 - 2 in. incision was made on my right side, and 5 years later, I am unable to locate it! I continue to remain heart healthy and do not have any residual issues due to the surgery. Dr. Massimiano is a great doctor/surgeon and I highly recommend him for Mitral Valve surgery! Donna H-M
