Surgical Patient Testimonials by Arizona Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons
Scottsdale 480-661-0700 | Peoria 623-476-5190

We love to hear from our patients as they continue on with their lives after cardiovascular surgery. Choosing your surgeon is serious business, you want to know that you are getting the best care possible. What better way to know than to hear it straight from the hearts and minds of patients who have already received life saving care from these doctors?

Please take a moment to read what our patients have to say, and, if you're facing the need for surgery yourself, we hope these testimonials will help you to be comfortable and confident in our work at Arizona Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons.

Dear Dr. Riley,
I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me this past summer. Not withstanding that
I perceived it as hell at the time, after 10 weeks I am doing very well! I feel better than I
did prior to my heart attack in 2006. You are the greatest and I owe you much more than
your fee could ever be.

Thank you and your fine staff for the treatment my wife and I received. Wishing you a
wonderful year ahead, to all of you and your families.

Dear Dr Riley,
I wanted to let you know that the operation you performed on me was successful. I felt
no pain during or after the operation. Furthermore after

Dear Dr Kathuria,
Four years and starting on number five, thanks to you and your skills.  Thank you for the last four!


Dear Dr Kathuria,
How do people go about thanking you for literally saving their lives?

I know I was blessed to be put in your hands.  Your compassion, the time you took in explaining things to me, the skill you have ….. How awesome you are !

The words thank you “thank you” surely don’t seem like enough.  I am very thankful.


Thank you Dr Kathuria.  Thanks to you I have a healthy life to look forward to.  So many things I want to do yet and now I’ll be able to do and enjoy everyday.

Thank You,

Dear Dr Kathuria,
God has blessed you with a great ability and we have been blessed having you for our doctor. 

Many Thanks,
Mr and Mrs RD

Dear Dr Kathuria,
Some people only know one way of giving….with both hands, with all their hearts, without a second thought.  Thank you for being one of them.

We want you to know how much we appreciate your professional services regarding T.C. surgery on 6/11.  You are a true professional and we appreciate all the effort you give to your patients.

Dear Dr Kathuria,
Please allow me to take a little of your time to thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It will be one year on of Aug 1 since you gave me a new chance at life due to your highly skilled hands and caring attitude.  This is in reference to the St Judes valve you so carefully placed into my heart and made it work so successfully.

For an update, thanks to yoy, I go to the gym and work out vigorously 4 to 5 times a week, I’m getting “buff” and my PCP says I am in great shape, all thanks to you!  May God continue to Bless and take care of you.


Dr Kathuria,
Thank you so much for helping to save my life Feb 5th at Boswell Hospital.  I did not get to say thanks at the time since I was sort of out of it!

Thanks Again,

Dr Kathuria,
Thank you so very much for such a fine bypass surgery on May 19th at Boswell Hospital.
Dr Klopf is attending my cardiac care now and I have started cardiac rehab.  I just wanted you to know of my appreciation.

Very Respectfully,

Dear Dr Kathuria,
I can never thank you enough for the gift you have given me.  My wife and I moved to Sedona a year ago with the hope of leaving our stressful lives behind and beginning a new calmer and creative life.

Thanks to your intervention we can now begin that life.  May your life always be blessed…  Mr and Mrs KB

Dear Dr Kathuria and staff,
I would like to express my appreciation for the time you have given and the excellent work that you have done for my mother GP.

With lots of thanks,

Words cannot express my gratitude to you for all your efforts in order for my life to continue.  Bless You!
