    Patient Comments (2)
    in Carlisle, PA |
    As his patient at Holy Spirit, I was wronged. During heart valve repair surgery- full sternotomy- he made two mistakes. He used too small of a ring to support my Mitral valve, restricting blood flow. He also misplaced a pacemaker wire in my Tricuspid valve, preventing it from closing. Unable to function normally, I sought a second opinion from another hospital and successfully survived a second sternotomy after 9 months. Dr. Lico mysteriously disappeared while I was still under his care.
    Harrisburg, PA |
    During a failed bypass in February 2016 as a "Director" at the Camp Hill Geisinger Ortenzio Heart Center at Holy Spirit Hospital, he tore my mammary artery. He tried to sew it up but it would not pass flow. I then had to have a stent put in. In a period before my surgery, Lico had a 14% failure rate on this kind of operation compared to better doctors with 2-4% failure rate. He's mediocre at best. His last words to me were "I could do this operation eating a donut". I think he tried.
