What People Say About Dr. Surindra Mitruka, MD
Reply
I can only say great things about Dr. Mitruka. July 2, 2017 marks my 10-year anniversary since Dr Mitruka, assisted by Dr. Joseph Wilson both at Eisenhower Medical Ctr, Rancho Mirage, CA, performed Open-Heart surgery on me for a Mitral Valve repair successfully. I am living proof that Dr Mitruka knows his art very well as I am functioning very well also. Kudos to him. Keep up the good work, Dr.
