I'm very upset, my mom had open heart surgery and 3 months later we find out a stitch broke and blood is leaking around the valve that was replaced. She now needs to have it repaired since she's having trouble breathing, not sure how or why this could possibly happen. She's too old to have to have it repaired, wishing it was done thoroughly the first time!!!!

He took his time to be sure I was comfortable with the decisions we had made regarding my surgery. His follow up was great and would use him again if needed as well as recommend him to others. He went a little further for me as I had purchased my wedding dress prior to surgery and did not want to be a member of the "zipper club", so he did an under the breast incision. I looked good as well as felt fabulous on my wedding day. Thank you Dr. Shannon.
