A very "comforting" climate. The Doctor's confidence was infectious;I feel much more positive about knowing I can handle my open chest surgery.

Dr Shelstad was a great doctor. Very through with his explanations of exactly what was going on and what the surgery and recovery processes were going to be.

This surgery is a very "life alternating" experience. Every assistant, PA and Doctor totally explained each step that was to happen and the outcomes. You can never be prepared for an experience like this but they have the knowledge and expertise and help every step of the way. They gave me every reason to believe in their experience and would always listen to any of my concerns. They made me and my family very confident in their expertise! Can't thank them enough for the outcome of my surgery!

this is somewhat "a joke": I will say to my friends go in right away and have your lungs scraped and your heart repositioned or replumbed just to be at the hospital is a life-enhancing experience

This visit was most appreciated! Dr. Shelstad was cordial, reassuring, friendly, informed, and so very pleasant and comfortable. He answered all my concerns with dignity and compassion. I highly recommend his work to anyone!

I will wait till after surgery to give an opinion on this, but it has been good so far
