    How was your appointment with Dr. Pereira?

    Oct 24, 2020
    Dr. Pereira performed my mitral valve repair in Nov 2018. This procedure was supposed to have been an easier one but turned out to be far from it. In mid-procedure she had to change from a minimally invasive procedure to a full sternectomy. To make a long story short, she was great before the procedure, worked great under pressure during the procedure and had great post-op care for me. Dr. Pereira is literally a life saver and an angel with her hands and skills. Thank you doctor. Doing great now.
