Regarding bedside manner, Dr Pham was very good leading up to the surgery, but I did have trouble meeting with him afterwards for some follow-up questions while still in the hospital. However, once he was able to see me it went well. He is easy to talk to and spent as much time as I wanted.
My experiences with Dr. Pham and Nortwestern Hospital in Chicago were both very good and I recommend both."
