    Aidan Raney MD
    AWESOME! Lets face it, heart surgery sucks, but Dr. Raney and his staff of BRILLIANT nurses were awesome. Dr. Raney is one of the highest rated cardiac surgeons in the country, and I just completely lucked out in having him perform my surgery. He just happened to be who I was referred to by my cardiologist. He was extremely knowledgeable (thank goodness) and "gave it to me straight" which I appreciated. I can't say enough good things about his staff. During the recovery process I had several unexpected things happen, and his staff literally held my hand along the way. I am, to this day, so grateful for all the did for me in helping me through the healing process.

    Temecula Valley Cardiology
    I've been using Temecula Valley Cardiology services since 1998. Dr. Ronald Low is a cardiac electrophysiologist there and I highly recommend him. I just had a cardiac ablation done on me last week and he did a great job. He's out of Riverside and works out of the Temecula Valley Cardiology office. He operates out of several different hospitals. Dr. Low and Dr. Wood are my two cardiologist. Dr. Wood is the plumber and Dr. Low is the electrician. I've been with them forever and I like them a lot, but something changed over the last few months. Apparently it's a new person or some policy change within their billing department. I pay my copay when I go there and when the billing come I usually age the billing by 30 days because the insurance takes so long. If you've had experience with medical you'll know that when you pay your bill and the insurance pays it'll take forever to get your money back. I've had over $2 million dollars worth of work on me ever since 1998 and it all went through Temecula Valley Cardiology even though it's involved with hospitals and places all over Southern California. I had a balance of $9 and I kept getting these phone calls like if it was $900,000. I got three phone calls within about 2 days about it and was getting a little agitated and I just said I'll go and talk to the people when I go in and see what's going on. I went in and had my $25 copay check and handed to them when I signed in and the first thing this girl says was, "Did you know you have a balance on your account?" I said for Christ's sake these are all cardiac patients here and you come in here and harass them that way over $9 freak'in dollars. I went in and told my nurse that I didn't know what the heck was going on here, but somebody is really changing things here because it kind of explains why a lot of the employees have been leaving if they're treating them the way they are the patients. What I found out was that I did owe them $9, but they just did their accounts for that month and I haven't even gotten the bill yet. They recently just put two new girls on the front desk and they would not win the weekly reward for personality. Of the three or four girls I see at that desk there's one of them who's perfect. She's really personable. I was very difficult to diagnose. I have both atrial and vertical arrhythmia and everything that they've done has helped me. They're level of treatment is good. The professionalism there is of a very high standard.

    I was sent to Dr. gundry by my physician who had some concerns about my EKG.  Been seeing him every six months for almost two years and all of my vitals have improved due to his recommendations as to diet, supplements and excercise.  He's even written a book, Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution which has become a must reading formy wife and me.

    Swerdlow, Dr. Charles
    I am a five-time cancer survivor powered by my 5th pacemaker and a new aortic valve. When I came to Cedars-Sinai in an ambulance in 2005, I didn't know what was wrong with me. I was shaking and passing out. i was used to having cancer but I had never passed out in my life. Thank God Dr. Swerdlow was in the ER that evening when they brought me in. They ran tests, found the problem and quickly came up with a lifesaving plan. His bedside manner was exceptional. He gently broke the news to me as he confidently explained why I needed a pacemaker. As he explained the procedure, I'm protesting, "I'm only 42. I'm not old enough for this." He reassured me, I wouldn't get very far without a pacemaker as he showed me the electrical problem my heart was clearly having. I made a few phone calls to my Integrative Physicians and they all agreed with Dr. Swerdlow. I had Complete AV Block and needed a pacemaker immediately. I was overwhelmed by the thought that a device the size of a Zippo lighter was going to power my heart for the rest of my life. I was to be powered by a device made by Medtronics or St Judes? The good news? I find out that Dr. Swerdlow is not just any old Electro Cardiologist, he is one of the guys who invents these devices and programs them. Awesome! I knew that if I had to have this pacemaker, he was the one to do it. I wasn't an easy case as my prior cancer treatments had damaged my heart tissue complicating every procedure. I had previously received 48 radiation treatments, 14 months of chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, 11 catheters and over a 100 blood transfusions. I had no fat on my chest so I requested my pacemaker be placed underneath my right breast. Dr. Swerdlow again accomodated my request to bring in my plastic surgeon. I think I made the medical history books that day. Dr. Swerdlow along with Dr. Aronowitz managed to sew the wires into my radiation damaged heart tissue and hide the pacemaker underneath my breast sparing me from sporting a protruding box under my skin. Dr. Swerdlow successfully replaced my pacemaker this past July as I had already run it out of batteries several years early. I keep telling them, "you can't pace this race horse." I feel better than I have felt in years. In addition to being a great Doctor, Dr. Swerdlow is also a great human being. He went to great lengths to protect me during my sixty day hospital stay for heart valve surgery in 2008 when my lungs bled into my heart. He let other doctors who weren't familiar with my fragile history know that I was, as he says, " a Porcelin China Doll." He visited me almost every day and saved my life on more than one occasion. I am forever grateful. He is a true genius and a caring family man.

    Ott, Dr. Richard A.
    The operation was done at a hospital in Anaheim, the service seemed alright, and there is no problem. Everybody in there was a heart patient, and they try to move the patients out as fast as possible, he kept checking on me to make sure that I was alright and making progress, until I passed the point where I would do just as well in a rehab center. He seemed competent, he had the credentials, he is well regarded, and he did fine with me, but I couldn’t recommend him as a heart surgeon. Regarding the staff, there were some bad actors there, some of the nurses were great, but some were not so great, they just wanted to get out of as much work as possible. I told the nurse who was giving me a bath that it was nice of them to be giving me a bath every couple of days, and she said that I was supposed to be bathed every day.

    Kaiser Permanente Medical Group
    They are absolutely outstanding. I wouldn't trade them for anything. The facility is brand new, and they have state-of-the-art equipment. They are also very efficient and professional. I will continue going there for medical check-ups and procedures, and I would highly recommend them to others.

    He is professional.  He is knowledgeable.  He is good to his patients.  He treats his patients well.  He is not the guys who are mad all times, he has got a nice demeanor.
