I have had 2 surgeries and my husband has had one surgery performed by Dr. March. We both have felt Dr. March's level of care and expertise were superior. I feel so fortunate to have benefitted from his professional talent in the surgical aspect and from his calm demeanor, advice and individual concern.

7 years ago I had a valve replacement. Dr. March performed the surgery and, from day one, I felt that it was important to him that I understand (in laymen’s language) exactly what to expect. Now, 7 years later, I still feel great. When I see him for a check-up, he never rushes through an exam and always listens to any concerns I have. I think one of the reasons I’m still around and healthy is that my surgeon was Dr. March.

Dr. Robert March saved my life in May 2017. We had never met previous to my aortic dissection surgery, yet he treated me as if he had known me forever. More importantly he was extremely kind and thoughtful to my husband and family keeping them informed during the entire process. In the after-care visits Dr. March was very thorough and detailed in his questioning and explanations of the healing process.

I had an ascending aortic aneurysm with a leaking bicuspid valve. Dr March and his team replaced a section of my aorta and repaired my valve 3 1/2 years ago. Today no leaks and no medication. His attention to detail is amazing. He listen to what the patient has to say and that's hard to find. He explained the entire procedure to my wife and I before the surgery and put us both at ease. I truly feel you will not be able to find a better surgeon.

Dr. March is one of the best Doctors I have ever used. His attention to detail, his answering all of my questions, and his caring nature put me at ease prior to and after my quadruple bypass. Rush's ICU nurses are top of the line. They were knowledgeable, very patient focused, and they and Dr. March put together a comprehensive pre and post surgical plan. Thanks Doc, feeling great!
