I am a Private Investigator in Iowa City. Dr. Farivar saved my life and gave me a great second opportunity to enjoy life for many years to come. Its been almost 2 years since he replaced my aortic valve with a cow valve and I feel great. He was very personable, professional, very explanitory, & proud and cocky for a very good reason. He is the best! If I ever have any surgery again, I pray Farivar is the surgeon. He gets the highest recomendation I could ever give. Lovin Livin in Iowa City.

Excellent physician, took on my husband who was an extremely complex case and turned down at Mayo, and did a beautiful job.
