I had a positive first impression, but was very disappointed when Dr. Cassivi failed to follow up with me despite leaving multiple messages for him.

I have had many medical issues and been in many Hospitals across the U.S. always trying to seek out the best possible care. Without doubt Dr. Cassivi ranks right at the top. Highly competent, truly caring and concerned about staying in touch after the surgery has been completed. I personally feel that he is one of the best Surgeons in the Country. I wish that we had more Doctors like him.

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.
