Dr Chicos is my angel. Without his professional experience and empathy I feel I would not be here. It has been 5 years since my two heart valves were repaired at Northwestern (not replaced). I had a major blood clot in my heart two years ago and with Dr. Chicos' care and treatment I was able to survive. I tell everyone about the great care I continue to receive at Northwestern Hospital.

I am a big fan of Dr. Chicos. He is an excellent doctor. He is direct, but, a the same time, caring. Soon after my initial appointment with Dr. Chicos, I was at the emergency room at Northwestern in Chicago very early on a Sunday morning. I was in atrial fibrillation. The attending doctor told me that he would call Dr. Chicos, but that I should realize that the likelihood of Dr. Chicos responding on an early Sunday morning was unlikely. Dr. Chicos returned the attendant's call within minutes with directions on how to proceed. Through Dr. Chicos' diagnosis and treatment over the years, my heart failure has been cured and my atrial fibrillation is in remission. I could not have asked for better results.
