Dr. Cartledge and his team of physicians, physician's assistants, and highly skilled nurses are a well oiled machine that runs on all cylinders. They provide the best quality care from top to bottom.

Dr. Cartledge replaced my aortic valve using a much less invasive procedure than other surgeons offered. He is a highly skilled, compassionate surgeon and does a good job of answering questions in a way anyone can understand. While the surgery went well, I did have a minor, non-life threatening post-op situation a month after. The doctor and his staff were always available and happy to do whatever was needed to get me through it. To me, that is the measure of a person with integrity.

When in for simple heart procedure, only to wait up with 6" scars on side stomach and back . Chest tubes and collapsed lung . NEVER SEEN DOCTOR AGAIN, RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL 2 days later with pain pills and oxygen tanks for home. Never heard from doctor or his office . Needed to go to Westside to repair damage .

Almost in a moments notice he saved my life!!!! he removed a massive mass of fluid living between my heart and lung and was undetected....I have had a wonderful recovery!!! I would highly recommend him and his decisions on the spot...I'm most grateful!!! This hospital is lucky to have him!!!

This man is not only a superb Cardio Vascular surgeon, he is an incredible human being. I have gotten to know him a little since my bypass one and a half years ago. this busy surgeon, not only gave my wife , and my self his cell phone number to call anytime. He treated us like family. You will not find a more informed , and better surgeon anywhere. I owe my life to this man CBAG x3 at 56 y/o , and he still calls me to see how I am doing. His PA,and APRN are as caring as he is.
