Patient Reviews of T. Sloane Guy, MD from Google
Although my highest priorities are the safety and effectiveness of the procedures, I also emphasize supporting the patient and their loved ones as fellow human beings. As they go through the challenge of undergoing major surgery, it’s important that myself and all the team involved in their experience see everything from the perspective of the patient and their families. The ratings and reviews seen here have been independently posted on Google and I do not control their content.
Dr. Sloan Guy is a dedicated, skilled surgeon who is committed to his patients, program but most of all, to healing. I emailed him at midnight and was speaking to him by 7:30 am. He was compassionate and respectful, and gave us not only the earliest appointment but moved up my father's surgery. His staff handled things so smoothly that I yet have to make one insurance call or deal with the 'business' office. Dr. Guy's attention to my family and father was invaluable. He used the most sophisticated and unique surgical techniques, and was present throughout the surgical spectrum from surgery to discharge. He's a hero to my family.
I am writing this on behalf of myself and my wife, who recently had robotic cardiac surgery with Dr. Guy. We live in New Jersey and did quite a lot of research before deciding to go with Dr. Guy. There were some outstanding surgeons recommended to us, but most did the traditional sternotomy whereas Dr. Guy presented the option of robotic surgery.
In our initial consult, which was scheduled quite promptly, Dr. Guy took his time to thoroughly explain the advantages of robotic surgery vs. traditional, and answer all our questions. He was not rushed, he was genuine and empathetic, and we left the consult feeling confident that we were in good hands.
The results were outstanding. My wife was out of ICU in less than one day and out of the hospital in a few days. It is now three weeks after heart surgery and she is back to normal activities and getting close to 100%, with no sternum or ribs to heal. Remarkable!
Robotic surgery just had so many advantages for us..........less pain after surgery, less time in the hospital, faster recovery at home. NYP is one of the few hospitals to perform robotic cardiac surgery with a world class surgeon. We urge anyone who is contemplating heart surgery to check it out.
As for Dr. Guy. He is so responsive and interested in his patients (as is his assistant, Amber), always available to you via email or phone, and eager to answer any questions you may have. With patient safety and a successful outcome equal to traditional surgery, anyone needing heart surgery should consider robotic surgery with Dr. Guy. Check him out. You will not be sorry!
My husband and I really believe that Dr, Guy is an angel in his profession.The consultation was very professional,but very comfortable and straight forward. He made my husband feel very confident about him doing his surgery.We continue to pray for a great and rapid recovery.Thanks soo much Amy for being there for us during the process.We appreciate you all.
Thanks the Haynes family
Dr. Sloane Guy repaired my seriously leaking mitral valve, using the most
advanced technology in robotic surgery. As a physician, I appreciated every phase of Dr. Guy's care: his technical expertise performing this complex operation, his clarity and forthrightness at the initial consultation, his attentive postoperative care, and his collaboration with my cardiologist and openness to my questions and concerns throughout the process.
The team of anesthesiologists, fellows, nurses and technicians that Dr. Guy has trained at Weill Cornell Medical Center for the robotic heart valve operations also delivered outstanding care.
The robotic surgery makes small incisions, which heal faster than the
conventional method of opening the whole chest. Just 2 weeks after the
operation I enjoyed a long-planned trip across the country in an RV. A year out now, I continue to be greatly pleased with the result. I strongly recommend Dr. Guy and his team for anyone needing mitral valve repair.
Excellent doctor. Wonderful staff. Felt safe and secure under his care. Excellent result after surgery. Highly recommend.
