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.
I love *Dr. Vassallo, a very caring and excellent physician. I only see her annually but, she has excellent memory, I feel like I am one of her family member that is how well she treats you, definitely not the coldness some physicians have.
dr. Vassallo is a fabulous practitioner, listening to the patient, explaining things clearly, being attentive to concerns, and actively encouraging better preventative measures. She is absolutely current on issues of medication and treatment. I have not encountered a more trustworthy, knowledgeable or sympathetic physician.
I would and have recommended Patti to people I have infinite trust in her and feel deep in my heart that she is doing her best to keep me breathing. I listen to her like I listen to my wife and if I don't listen to my wife I don't eat. The best I can do is boil water so my wife is the boss and so is Patti. I think Patti could create a template for how doctors' should treat a patient. I am old enough to remember when the old time docs wanted you to kiss their ring. I never did it then and I won't do it now, but with Patti you feel like you are talking to a good buddy.
My experience with Dr. Vassallo exceeded my expectations. She spent a significant amount of time with me and explained so many things. I was a bit on edge going in because of the echo. I am excited about having Dr. Vassallo be my new cardiologist.
