"We got the head of Thoracic surgery at the Intermountain Medical Center and had no complains in the manner of care and explanations and attitude of the surgeon." We were lucky to be referred to him by our general practitioner. The explanations, surgical work, and check-ins were very well done and we felt confident that he did the surgery and got the results we were hoping for. Would recommend him in future to others needing heart or
care and possibly surgery.

"He is a friend of ours. He is awesome. He is great at cardiology. My husband is doing fine, but 15 years ago he had some difficult surgery. He is the best. He is" very well known in the area. He knows his stuff.

One of our basic rights as United States citizens — to speak freely — is in jeopardy.

In a small, but scary trend, a growing niche of health care providers are requiring patients to sign away their rights to comment openly, anonymously, publicly and privately about the level of service they receive from physicians — good or bad.

Thoracic Surgery reviews in Florence

He's a great doctor and I'd absolutely recommend him! The follow-up for the procedure has been great and I'll definitely stay with him. The staff are all very friendly and the office seems to be run well.

He was great. He set up the exam table like an easel, and
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
a picture of the anatomy involved on the paper covering it; listened to our concerns and answered our questions; laid out a schedule for biopsy and surgery that was expeditious.
The logistics of the arrangements did not go so well, due to a communication breakdown somewhere, and we had a scramble at the last minute to make the surgery happen. (The low rating in billing and admin is related to this.) However, it did happen, and seems to have gone well.
(With this kind of surgery, we may not know effectiveness of treatment for some time, hence my "N/A" on that question.)

I know that she is up to date on things. She treats me like I'm a knowledgeable person. We can disagree with each other in terms of care, but she will give me her honest opinion regarding new treatment methods. I began going to her in 2013, since I had my first

put in. The communication with her is excellent. She treats me with respect.

Full disclosure: I am a faculty member at the
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Medical Institutions. This review is, however, an objective assessment Dr.
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and not of the
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Hospital in general (or even the cardiology department).
I had been having chest pains for several months when I had a catheterization at
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Hospital which revealed 4-5 severe blockages that required bypass surgery. The blockages were not amenable to stenting. In any event, I was scheduled for surgery the next week with Dr.
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. The surgery was cancelled and rescheduled because Dr.
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was called in the night before my surgery for an emergency

transplantation. He then had a death in his family and had to travel to
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
for the funeral. He nevertheless kept in contact with his staff to follow-up on patients. I underwent surgery a week after the original appointment.
Hopefully, you will never require the specialized services that Dr.
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
provides. But if you do, he is the man you want for the surgery. I was particularly impressed by his calmness and Zen-like demeanor. It is very comforting for a patient to be in the hands of such a calm, confident, and skilled, physician.

It was a double bypass and put in a pig’s valve. My husband was very sick for several years and he saved his life. He’s very too the point but he knows his stuff. He’s very dedicated to his patients and told us everything that was going to happen. Our cardiologist referred us to him and my husband has the highest praise for him. I would recommend him to anyone, especially if you have prior complicating factors.

I think he was very
Florence Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
with me, explained the surgery and the procedure. They used a robot. I think I was well prepared for the outcome and he explained the risks. He has done several follow ups to double check and see how I was doing. I did have a problem too but they seemed to refer me somebody else that they felt would be able to solve this problem or try to work on it with me. He is a thoracic surgeon, the treatment he directly handles is throat cancer but I didn’t have cancer. With respect to his availability, he is a busy person but his staff always tries to get me in promptly if I needed it.

He is businesslike which is what we prefer. We were looking for someone competent and that is what he is. He had pulled my husband out of some bad stuff. I would highly recommend him. My husband has had heart problems since he was 46 and he is now 80.
