Met Dr. Dearman five days before he performed an aortic valve replacement and I was very impressed with his bedside manner. First thing he did was to apologize to me and my family for being late for our meeting. He then proceeded to explain the entire procedure to me informing me how he was going to replace my aortic valve and thoroughly answered all questions that I had regarding the replacement. I highly recommend him to anyone who may need thoratic and/or cardiac surgery.

Dr. Dearman was called in on the heels of an orthopedic surgery to restore blood flow to my daughters foot. He literally saved my 17 yr. old from losing her foot and giving her a chance for a normal life. He was very informative during the surgery and attentive after as well.
