4 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Pham

"I was admitted for surgery on December 17th for a Mitral Valve repair and double heart bypass. I was fortunate enough to be in the care of three absolutely top notch physicians Dr. Pham, Dr. Sareyyupoglu and Dr. Oken. The care and expertise that I received both before during and after my procedures was first rate and I am now almost fully recovered. But for the dedication of my team of physicians and very caring nurses, my medical prognosis would have looked very different."

-- Mitchell Davies, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 12/17/2021

"I had a diagnosis of severe aortic stenosis and needed a valve replacement. Dr. Pham and his team decided I needed an open-heart valve replacement procedure. Dr. Pham was outstanding, as well as all the care givers at the Jacksonville hospital. My recovery was very quick and I’m now back to walking 5-miles a day. Thank you Mayo Clinic Jacksonville!"
