Dr. Gerdisch

"Dr. Marc Gerdisch’s bedside manner was impeccable. All of my questions were answered before and after my mitral valve repair."

-- Angie Gregory, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Gerdisch and his team were wonderful. They explained everything so well I felt totally at ease before the surgery.

The surgery went very well. My recovery has been borderline miraculous. On the first day home form the hospital, I was able to care for myself. I have 17 steps to get to my apartment and that was no problem for me. I actually went up and down several times that first day.

When the visiting nurse service showed up the next day, the nurse told me I didn't qualify for the service since I was so healthy. Six weeks after the surgery, I was back to playing volleyball. I've had little to no pain in my chest.

His office has always been prompt with answering calls and answering any questions I had. I highly recommend Dr. Gerdisch and his team of professionals."
