Mike Dinger - Severe Mitral Valve Regurgitation

Mike Dinger considered traveling to Nashville or Atlanta for treatment of his mitral valve regurgitation. Instead, he's glad he chose the Erlanger Heart & Lung Institute where he found a team of top-notch heart doctors right in Chattanooga. “Everything we experienced exceeded all our expectations,” he said.
