Dr Bose saved my husband’s life at least twice in 2006, had bypass with many complications, not because of Dr. Bose. I can report that 12 years later the husband is doing great. If we lived in the Tucson area and had to have cardiac surgery, we wouldn’t accept anyone but Dr. Bose. How do you thank someone for saving your loved one’s life?

My mother, at age 98, needed to have her aortic valve replaced. Dr. Bose came highly recommended, and we simply love him. I came with a long list of questions, and he patiently answered every one. Dr. Bose performed the necessary surgery and then kept a close eye on my mother's recovery. My mother is 99 now and doing well. We are unimaginably grateful to Dr. Raj Bose. I highly recommend this surgeon.

While one does not go to a cardio surgeon for entertainment but for technical skill, it is nonetheless important that good physicians connect with patients. Dr Bose apparently skipped Social Relationships 101 in med school. He is impatient and seems to strive to spend as little time conversing with patients, including answering their questions as possible. Curt almost to the point of rudeness. I had the sense that I was an inconvenience. Skillful with a scaple but zero bedside manner.

To the person from Phoenix, AZ that posted on 7/7/17, if you don't mind I would like to learn more about your experience. I am currently researching the same procedure and want to be fully educated about all things that can go wrong. Thank you. email: 1andonlygeena@gmail.com

Terrible physician who took on my brothers critical case even though he had no idea how to repair pectus excavatum. Now we are looking for another surgeon to fix this terrible surgeons mistake.
