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

"After seeing Dr. Gerdisch on an interview, I called his office and his wonderful office manger immediately transferred my problems to him. He asked for all my test records and he then called me himself to discuss what he can do.

I have been suffering for 17 months with extreme shortness of breath and no one would order a TEE test that would explain my problem. I had a TAVR done in 2017 that did not last, and the doctors would not admit there could be a problem. I was told to learn to live with it.

Dr. Gerdisch went out of his way to ensure me that my problem can be corrected. His staff are top notch, the hospital nurses were amazing, and I can’t say enough about how wonderful Dr. Gerdisch is.

In surgery, at bedside, or in the office. It is now 9 weeks after surgery and he called me to see how I am doing. I had tears in my eyes that a busy surgeon would take the time to do that.

Oh by the way, I traveled from North Carolina to Indianapolis just for him to do the surgery. And it was the best decision I ever made."
