Patient Comments (5)
Saco, ME |
My initial consultation began with him telling me how he lost 5 patients early in his career and what he learned from those cases. That sold me! I was his 534th Ross Procedure patient and I am 4 years out with no restrictions and no medications!
in Bellerose, NY |
Not only is he a marvelous surgeon, but he is also a kind, considerate doctor who understands the stress that the entire family feels when a loved one is terribly ill and is undergoing a life threatening surgery. He spend an inordinate amount of time explaining what he will be doing during the surgery, visiting his patients twice a day and making sure that everything is coming along once his patient leaves the hospital. Staff cannot say enough good things about this wonderful doctor.

Dr. Stelzer is a genius and a saint.
in Yonkers, NY |
The best. I would not be living, it has been 2 years now without the his expertise. If you find yourself in this position it has to be Dr. Stelzer, if at all possible. Kind, genuine, gentle and an amazing person.
