Dr. Mehlman is outstanding, and a meeting with him is like a meeting with a friend. Always interested in what I'm doing--and not just with the heart issues, but in general.

Dr Mehlman is the best doctor that I have ever seen. His level of interest in the patient is amazxing. He writes the summary of my visit typed for about 2 pages and then he sends a copy to me and my physician. I really think that Dr Mehlman should be recognized for his service at Northwestern and I work for Northwestern myself. He is really a very special doctor.

*Dr. Mehlman provides me a miniature of my EKG results (for the wallet). This personal service was extremely helpful when I suddenly entered the hospital while on vacation. The doctor in Nantucket found the copy of the EKG valuable in treating me. The doc reached out to *Dr. Mehlman and he promptly helped her treat me until I returned to Chicago. *Dr. Mehlman even reached out to me to find when I would return to Chgo. so he could examine me. I think MyCare is outstanding.
