Saved My Father In-Law's Life

Posted on February 20th, 2013

This doctor is on the leading edge of his field. Stanford was one of 21 hospitals in the country involved in a special clinical trial of artificial aortic heart valves in 2010 (the Edwards SAPIEN valve). My father in-law qualified (one of only 80 patients to receive the valve at Stanford). This valve is implanted in the beating heart in a manner similar to how a stent is placed - no open heart surgery, just a four day stay at Stanford. Before this surgery his regular cardiologist diagnosed him with congestive heart failure (his heart was pumping less than half the blood it should due to aortic stenosis). He was too sick for open heart surgery so if he had not received this valve, he would have died within months. After the implant, he immediately felt better and was able to resume a normal life. At follow-up office visits, this doctor (who was part of the surgical team) was very thorough and confidence-inspiring. P.S. The FDA has now approved this valve for use only for extremely sick patients who would not survive normal open heart surgery. It has been two years since the implant and he is in good shape.

Having seen many cardiologists in the last 40 years, I am able to rate Dr. Fearon on a comparative basis. I think he is excellent. Covers all the bases, always has the latest information and makes one feel confident they are getting the best diagnosis, assessment and plan. Excellent consult/second opinion if one lives far away as I do

Excellent confidence inspiring doc

Posted on July 9th, 2012

I and a close friend are followed by Dr. Fearon. He always takes the necessary time to answer all questions and inspires tremendous confidence. I understand from my Internist that he is very well thought of by his peers at this major heart center.
