7 Patient Reviews for
"While my immediate need was a valve repair, Dr. Pham had reviewed my file before our first meeting and suggested this would be an opportunity to repair an aortic aneurysm, and also perform a maze procedure for the Afib. I had been taking medications for years to control my atrial fibrillation. This was a year ago and I enjoy life with no medical restrictions or difficulties. I couldn't be happier that Dr. Pham was my surgeon and I would recommend him without hesitation."

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."
