At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr Vassallo has been treating me for 11 months following my aortic valve , aortic root replacement, and heart attack. She has recommended the right tests, treatment, and medications for my situation resulting in the best outcome possible with my low ejection fraction ... I am able to exercise on a regular basis and work full time.
The care I have received from NM Cardiology has been exceptional. From surgery through aftercare, through follow-up, I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism, as well as the kindness in all of the care I have received.
She is sharp as a tack!She started looking at all my medical records immediately and explained everything in great detail. Made recommendations and understood my limitations.I'm very happy she is my doctor. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Every aspect of my visit was outstanding. The check-in process was seamless. My appointment was on time. Dr. Vassallo, as always, took her time explaining my test results, reviewing my meds and in general checking on health. She took her time and I felt very valued as a patient. Northwestern Med remains #1 in my book!
I was very fortunate 12 years ago that Dr. Vassallo was monitoring my fainting spells. She diagnosed my problem (SVT), arranged for the surgical procedure to correct it, and has monitored my condition since. She is a great cardiologist!
She is good at discussing with you and weighing out the risks regarding care. Very easy to communicate with makes you feel she really cares about your health so she can provide the best course of treatment
Teaching Hospital .Respected throughout the USA.Dr Vassallo is thorough and is an active listener. She is personable and takes time with you. She is proactive and very knowledgeable...Unreasonable that even if you are a long time patient, rescheduling can take up to one year. NMH use to believe in "Patients First".
Dr. Vassallo is the perfect combination of smarts and accessibility. She's terrific at explaining the medical considerations, but also a totally user-friendly doctor. I always tell everyone I cannot imagine a better cardiologist.
Dr Vassallo is patient, empathetic, kind, and incredibly caring. She is an outstanding care provider. She is amazingly smart and technically skilled but still takes the time to listen to the patient to ensure their understanding and buy in. She's fantastic
