Patient Testimonials

  • I was referred to Dr. Raney for my TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) procedure. I interviewed several different interventional cardiologists and Dr. Raney stood out as the best from the get go. It was clear that he had an “expert” background in this newer and technologically advanced medical procedure. He took the time to answer all of my questions about the procedure and provided me with the knowledge I needed to feel comfortable about my decision to have the procedure done. Dr. Raney’s team at St. Joe’s and Hoag did a phenomenal job in coordinating my TAVR and making sure that all of the necessary paperwork and tests were done in a timely manner. Thanks to Dr. Raney, the procedure itself was a tremendous success and my recovery was a swift one.

  • As a physician of 30 years, I am familiar with the difference between good and great medical care. Dr. Raney embodies the qualities of an excellent physician. He is tremendously knowledgeable about all facets of cardiology and demonstrated his keen understanding of his craft during my several out patient visits leading up to my coronary angioscopy. Dr. Raney explained my cardiac complications and the proposed remedies in a clear and concise manner. On the day of my procedure, he not only handled my case with expert care, but he also took the time to liaise with my family to keep them abreast of my procedure and recovery. I could not have been more impressed with Dr. Raney’s knowledge, skill set or professionalism.

  • Dear Dr. Raney:

    Thank you for performing a TAVR operation on my mom. My family and I are so very grateful to you for giving us extra time with our cherished mother. You were so amazing throughout this entire process! You took the time to go over the many questions that my mom and I had during our visit to your office. You checked in with us frequently prior to the operation; I can’t tell you how much peace of mind that it gave me and my mom to know that you truly cared. Following the procedure (which you did an amazing job on!), we really appreciated your wonderful bedside manner on the many visits you made to check in on my mom. I cannot thank you enough for giving my mother this new lease on life.

    With gratitude and appreciation,
