Cardiac Surgery at NYP/Queens
What Our Patients Are Saying
"My husband came on a Saturday after the cardiologist told us to go emergently to the ED. He did ultrasound and saw a huge aneurysm with a tear in the wall. Dr Dimitrios came in to see us and explained that we had to do surgery. He finished the surgery the same afternoon and saved his life!!!"
"My experience being a patient of Dr. Lau’s has been one that will stand out in my mind for the rest of my life. Dr. Lau is a mix of empathy and professionalism all wrapped up in one. One thing that I know without a doubt in my mind is that he knows his job like the palm of his hand. After I was diagnosed with my condition and immediately informed that I needed surgery to replace damaged heart valves, I knew instantly that I could trust him with the surgery. I’ve since had a successful open-heart surgery and I give credit to God, Dr. Lau and his amazing team for giving me a new lease on life. The post-op care has also been amazing. Dr. Lau personally calls you back immediately each time you call his office with any concerns (even on a weekend!). I feel blessed to have had such an amazing cardiac team and would encourage anyone with heart issues/requiring heart surgery to seek out Dr. Lau at New York Presbyterian. I am grateful to him and thank him again for this new lease on life that he’s allowed me to have. High five to the rest of his amazing team as well. Everyone worked as one for a unified goal."
"I learned after a CT scan that I had an ascending aorta aneurysm 4cm which scared me. I met with Dr. Lau and my fears quickly diminished. I spoke with him and he was very reassuring and knowledgeable. Dr. Lau answered all of my questions with patience and clarity. Thankfully I was not in need of immediate attention or surgery and was told I could go about my life as usual and he'd put me on a watch list and see me in a year! I highly recommend Dr Christopher Lau, excellent physician!"
