Patient Reviews
Mar 11, 2022
Dr. Pavlina was able to repair my bicuspid aortic valve. This gave me the ability to stay off of coumadin and continue my life normally after surgery recovery. The initial visit he made sure that all of my questions were answered and he took the time to listen and explain. Once it was time for me to make the decision on repair or replacement (mechanical / bovine) he made sure I had all of the information and then left me to make my own decision, which I appreciated. In the hospital all of the nurses raved about how good Dr. Pavlina is and that if they had something happen to them he would be their top choice. The care at Kettering Medical Center was overall very good compared to my experiences at other hospitals for the preliminary testing before I knew that I had surgery.
