Dr Vassallo has been treating me for 11 months following my aortic valve , aortic root replacement, and heart attack. She has recommended the right tests, treatment, and medications for my situation resulting in the best outcome possible with my low ejection fraction ... I am able to exercise on a regular basis and work full time.
