I had another electrician before Dr. Chicos, who did a cardio conversion and was not satisfied at all. I meet Dr. Chicos for another cardio conversion and was so satisfied by his care and concern, I asked him if he could be my doctor. And, he has been every since. He truly cares for his patients and their well being. He develops a mutual trust with his patients and involves them in their coronary care by explaining programs and procedures that are needed for their care. To me, he exemplifies what Northwestern stands for.

Northwestern proves to its Cardiac patients every day, that the high ranking it has as one of the finest Cardiac Care Hospitals in the United States is richly deserved. The total commitment to insure each patient receives the best and most complete care can readily be seen and felt. From check in to check out on the 19th floor, you are in the hands of professionals, from staff to the doctors they are concerned about the patient and their welfare.

They really seem to know what's going on with me! I'm going to find out when I talk to my surgeon again, if my surgery is going to be a surgery that will fix my problem for good. Or if it's something that will come back as I age since it is not a genetic disease.
