Dr. Cai saved my husbands life in 2013. He performed a 10 1/2 hour surgery repairing my husbands aortic dissection and replaced his aortic valve. He also provided excellent post surgery care while my husband was in a coma. Everything that could go wrong seemed to and through it all Dr. Cai had the solution. Not only was he taking care of my husband, he was there to reassure me when I thought all was lost. This doctor is amazing and he cares so much. I will be forever grateful to him.

Dr Cai literally saved my life. During a quintuple bypass one of my lungs deflated causing big complications. Am now at home still recovering after five weeks in the hospital
