Awesome Surgeon. Dr Valencia was amazing during my recent angioplasty. His comforting discussions before the procedure put me at ease and his reputation at the hospital with all the nurses and assistants is exemplary. Though I hope to never need a surgery in the future, if I do Dr. Valencia is my first choice !

Dr. Valencia performed an angiogram Aug 18 2016. In recovery I had a brain stem stroke. I was admitted there for 8 days. Not one time did Dr. Valencia come see me or contact me. After 8 days I was sent to Health South and admitted for 8 days, again no contact from my doctor who's patient suffered a brain stem stroke. This to me shows a persons true caliber and he failed!

Just had Dr. Valencia put in a stent. He looked at my tests and knew immediately what had to be done. I am a 72 year old male and feel 1,000% better. It's only been a week, I saw him today for a follow up and everything looks great. See him again in Jan.,2018. Staff has always been the best and have never had a problem talking to someone. Been a patient of NV Heart and Vascular for 10 years. Dr. Valencia was just great with me. William Downs
