Dr. Ballard and his staff exceeded my expectations of care. I was fortunate to receive a MitraClip on Sept. 1st and the treatment I received, leading up to the therapy, was far beyond what I imagined. For 18 years I was a practicing cardiovascular perfusionist and one of seven whom co-author the 1st & 2nd editions of Standards of Perioperative Blood Management. Dr. Ballard, his wonderful team, and Piedmont Hospital have provided the very best care I could ever hoped to receive. Thank You! KCR
