2 Patient Reviews for Dr. Anyanwu

"I was playing my guitar the day I was discharged. Dr. Anyanwu inspired my complete confidence."

-- Bob DeVoz, Guitarist, heart valve surgery patient

"I was playing my guitar the day I was released and performed in concert a few weeks later. Dr. Anelchi Anyanwu, Dr. David Adams, Dr. Chan and all the team were extraordinary, as was the entire professional staff of Dr. Anyanwu's physician assistants, nurses and physical therapists. I was a repeat open heart surgery, and I can say from experience, that Mount Sinai is light years beyond other facilities. Dr. Anyanwu and Dr. Adams inspired and merited my complete confidence. My wife and I thank everyone with--yes--both our hearts."
