Dr. Chico to me is a very patient person, he doesn't rush you to the appointment, he takes the time to understand what you're trying to tell him. And I have the most respect for him he's wonderful.

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.

I love his personality right off! He got me into see another Dr that I needed to see so we could confirm somethings.He ordered some test done that were need so we could proceed on with this upcoming surgery. HE WAS AWESOME! Their was a misunderstanding on my appointment so I drove 4 hours for Dr Chico's to talk to me for 5 minutes so he made my day worth driving up there for. NOW THAT'S A GOOD DR!!!! GOD BLESS HIM...

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.

I feel very privileged to be in the care of dr Chicos. He gives total focus to the patient with complete knowledge of patients history He is thorough in probing patients condition He considers all possibilities of symptoms cause and consider s all options of diagnosis and resolution. He has no distractions from the patient at hand with no apparent limit of cure. In fact he gives too much of himself. My concern is that he not be overworked though he shows no sign of stress. TY God for dr Chicos.
