"It has been one year since my aortic valve replacement and aortic aneurysm repair. I felt comfortable with Dr. Pappas's diagnosis and approach and did not seek a second opinion. His team at Advocate Christ Hospital was superb. Dr. Pappas came highly recommended to me by word of mouth in my community and I feel lucky to have had this surgery done by him. I heartily (sorry!) recommend Dr. Pappas."

"It was an extremely difficult time when we found out I needed mitral valve surgery on 12/23/11. When we started our research it was amazing how many times Dr. Patroklos Pappas’s name at Christ Hospital had come up from doctors, friends, and co-workers. We originally had 2 consultations set up but after meeting Dr. Pappas he made us feel so reassured that he would do his best to repair my valve perfectly and do the 2 bypasses. We totally believed in him and trusted he would take great care of me so we cancelled our 2nd consultation at Northwestern. I had surgery on 2/23/12, Dr. Pappas did open heart surgery along with the tremendous team of doctors and nursing staff at Christ Hospital. They all did a great teamwork approach. It was only 2 weeks ago and I am already feeling better and recovering very quickly. My wife and I are extremely grateful and thankful for the excellent care and would highly recommend Dr. Pappas and the entire team at Christ Hospital to anyone needing heart surgery. They said they would take great care of me and they did! Dr. Pappas is the King of Heart Surgeons!"
