Dr. Churyla

"Dr. Churyla thoroughly briefed me on my test results and recommended my procedure. He spoke in terms understandable to me and interpreted the medical jargon.

His professionalism and demeanor instilled confidence in his surgical skills. My procedure was completed exactly as explained with release from the hospital 3 days post surgery. Follow up with Dr Churyla was thorough while encouraging me to reach out to him with any questions or concerns going forward."

-- William Smetana, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Mini Sternotomy, 10/25/2023

"Dr. Churyla was very down to the point and his bedside manner was great. I stayed a week in the hospital. He was there everyday, explained how everything was going and what to expect after leaving the hospital.

His office called and checked a few times after I went home. It has been 2 months and I have had no issues with afib or shortness of breath. I am getting my energy back and feeling better everyday, which has not been this way for 10 years. I have seen my local cardiologist and had EKG with no issues.

I am so thankful! My family encouraged me to go to Northwestern Medicine. To me, they are the best."
