How likely are you to recommend Dr. Balsam?

Dr. Balsam put an aortic tissue valve in my heart in April 2014. She did an excellent job, as did everyone on the surgical staff. I have the highest regard for her surgical abilities (and also for her as a person) and would not hesitate to have her be my surgeon again. Anyone with the sort of valve problem I had would be very lucky to get her.
