Dr Springer replaced my aortic valve six weeks ago. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I have a new lease on life because of his expertise. His associates and staff were all wonderful. The care I received in the hospital was exceptional. I highly recommend him for any cardiovascular surgery. As a retired RN, I knew what the surgery entailed. The care I received helped make the whole experience very much less frightening.
