Most amazing doctor you will ever meet. Operated on me for both a bypass and aorta replacement and he was perfect. If you are blessed to have him operate on you, you are in the most qualified hands. Thank you Dr Shemin for giving me life again.

I just went and saw him am I was very impressed he made me feel very comfortable I have aneurysm at my aortic although I am very scared , he spent a lot of time explaining to me and let me record what he had to say so my children could understand and know confusion he did recommend I have the surgery but I need to have some other tests because I also get blood clots so I surely do not know what my future is going to be and I hope I live a long life am 58 7 kids 4 grandchildren

He performed a life saving surgery on my husband - Dr. Shemin had already worked a full day, and my husband was airlifted late in the evening in extremely critical condition. Dr. Shemin repaired his heart and I will be forever grateful to him for his expertise, kindness, and bedside manner.
