101 Patient Reviews for
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. Marc Gerdisch did a great job explaining what would occur during my surgery. In my opinion, he is a very talented surgeon. The results of my surgery has exceeded my expectations. My hospital stay was only three days and I have had no pain or problems. I have been released to go off after only eight weeks after surgery. I am feeling a lot better and have much more energy. My motto is a “ton of gain with zero pain.” I would highly recommend Dr. Gerdisch and his team. They were wonderful."
