      I was so worried about my open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve and aorta--needless worry, thanks to Dr. singer. He's the most skilled surgeon on, at least, the East coast. Don't hesitate to call on your own if you know you need any heart surgery. Along with his excellent skill set, he is fun and concerned about all his patients. I was out of the hospital the fifth day--up, walking, talking with friends, etc. only thing that hurt a bit was the sternum, but that was fine in four week

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Singer's Care Philosophy

      My philosophy of care is very simple is treat every patient as if they were a member of your own family. My father died of lung cancer at the age of 70. Prior to that, he had battled lymphoma and prostate cancer. My mother has survived kidney cancer, lung cancer, and heart disease. I suppose it's fair to say that I have come from a family of patients, not doctors. The blessing is that I have experienced what patients and their families go through during times of illness. Caring for patients as if they were a member of my own family allows me to find the strength to face the long hours and stress of being a cardiothoracic surgeon.
