Excellent care.


May 16, 2018

Although this was my first visit with Dr. Ammons and his team, they were very well prepared for me and set my mind at a bit more ease for this "scary" procedure.


May 11, 2018

Visited surgeon's office for follow up. Did not see him.


May 3, 2018

Needed heart by pass surgery scheduled very quickly.


Apr 25, 2018

I went to the structural heart clinic for a second opinion and was so impressed with them I will almost certainly use them for my cardiac care.


Apr 23, 2018

Informative.


Mar 22, 2018

This provider was a second opinion. My wife and I felt that this provider answered our questions and while he knew there were risks, that I was well enough for the procedure. He eased our trepidation considerably.


Feb 21, 2018

Receptionist, nurse & doctor were all very personable, kind, and caring, responsive to my questions and concerns, thorough & efficient, willing to listen and help me in any way.


Feb 14, 2018

Scheduled and had open heart surgery.


Feb 9, 2018

Everyone was very courteous. Dr. Ammons took great care to explain my upcoming procedure including why he was taking the approach he had chosen, what to expect during and after the operation and what to expect post-op.
