Dr. Maltais is the best doctor. He did a tricuspid valve repair in Nov. at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN on me and I was very happy with him and his staff. I had very little pain after surgery I am sure because of the AWESOME CARE HE GAVE.

I am so grateful for Dr. Maltais. I truly believe he is the reason my dad is here today. On July 24, 2017 my dad suffered a major heart attack Drs. giving him almost a 0% to survive. We asked for a second opinion and out the blue Dr. Maltais walked in On August 7, 2017 Dr Maltais performed a coronary bypass and mitral valve replacement for papillary muscle rupture. After a 3 month stay in the hospital and one year later my dad is doing everything he used to do. Thank You Dr Maltais !
