Dr Roselli is an excellent, top notch surgeon. His skill and knowledge, combined with his personality make him one of the best cardiac surgeons! His caring and willingness to answer my questions were greatly appreciated. I tell everyone to go to Dr Roselli if they need a cardiac surgeon, and to go to he Cleveland Clinic.

Provider stated surgery coordinator would contact me in 1-2 days about elective aortic repair surgery. That was 9 days ago and have not heard anything yet about scheduling, not scheduling, or difficulty scheduling the surgery.

I am thankful for Dr. Roselli. He did a great job on the first aorta repair. He also saved me a lot of extra pain and recovery time with the new FDA stent trial he is involved with from my second aorta issue. Dr. Roselli's staff always speaks highly of him.

Having had open heart surgery, I joke with my friends about how I hope they never have to meet a heart surgeon professionally. However, if they do need one I would definitely recommend the Cleveland Clinic and, if there need involved the aortic valve or an aortic aneurysm, I would highly recommend Dr Roselli.
