If it wasn't for Dr. Mahidhara I would not be here. He performed a double lung transplant on me. There were complication and he worked to save me. God had diffently sent him to me. The surgery was done at U of M. I am in my 8th year of my transplant. I will never forget him. Once again THANK YOU!

A horrific experience. Unless you're seeking an arrogant, temper tantrum, lack of any empathy surgeon that has no regard to your well being while being pushy, screams at his patients,then I would advise you to seek a surgeon elsewhere! Dr Mahidhara became a living nightmare that brought so much stress into my life at the most very critical time OF my life. I praise the Good Lord that I rid my health of Dr Mahidhara and went on to find an absolutley wonderful surgeon that has been a Godsend.
