Gary Grosner, Stephen Ellis, William Turner Jr. and Adam Harmon are good heart valve surgeons practicing at hospitals that received top scores for heart surgery by Consumer Reports in 2014. Only 15 heart centers in the country met all the criteria to be included on the top-rated list.
To find a good heart valve surgeon in a local area, potential patients can identify a hospital listed in the top 15 heart centers by Consumer Reports, and then follow the link to the selected hospital's website. On the website, each hospital provides more information about its cardiology services and the medical team that has helped it earn its reputation for superior care. For example, patients in Texas can research two hospitals that make the Consumer Reports list: the Heart Hospital and Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital, both of which are part of Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics.
Through the website for Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics, potential patients can search for a surgeon either by name, specialty or related keyword, in order to obtain more details about each doctor’s areas of specialty within cardiology. Those in need of care can also use the hospital's site to contact individual surgeons, schedule appointments, and find out more about what is involved in heart valve surgery.
