Dr. Chikwe

"Dr Chikwee is a national treasure. I would have a much shorter life had it not been for. Explaining the procedure, and the healing is understanding. She explains details. Personally, she’s my Dr Princess who had my heart in her hands. Wishing you many years of success in your career and than again many more. I would not hesitate recommending a consult with her.♥️"

-- Maureen Ahad, Tricuspid Valve, Valve Repair, 05/14/2018

"Dr Chikwe took her time to explain everything in detail, she exudes confidence and even when my Mitral Valve proved to be a "challenging" repair, she took the time to repair rather than replace, she also repaired my Aortic valve while she was in there. If you are faced with a valve problem, see her for consult, she is an expert in repair in my book and her credentials are second to none."
