I’ve had the doctor for about five or six years and I am very pleased with him. One thing I have to say is that everyone in my family died from heart problems. Dr. Checo has just been great, get an ablation on me, and I haven’t had any problems for at least a year and a half. He’s the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone that had a a fib problem

I could not be happier with Dr. Chicos ever since he became my cardiologist. I have the utmost confidence in his medical knowledge and expertise and in the care and medical opinion he provides to me. In addition, he is curteous, kind, considerate, and empathetic.

Dr. Chicos was very understanding and thoughtful when talking through my diagnosis. I felt very confident in his knowledge and I walked out of my appointment feeling confident that I will be okay.

Extremely knowledgeable and caring. He takes the time to explain all test results completely along with medications and any future care. He is friendly and very approachable. He is a great doctor!

His team was the first to see me for removal of vegetation on pacemaker wire at my Tricuspid valve in 2017. After going over everything, doctor Chicos said he would get me in for the operation in 7-14 days to get removed, and they did.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
