Dr. Cassivi exemplifies what every physician should strive for. He is caring, compassionate, and outstanding in his field. He has gone over and beyond again and again to make sure that I receive the best care that Mayo has to offer, even though my problems had nothing to do with thoracic surgery. Word can't fully express my gratitude for his care over the last 10 years.
