As explained above, Dr Afana did an Outstanding job of saving my life after I had a heart attack on December [ ] and was taken to Northwestern Medicine Palos Hospital. My March [ ] visit was my first with him. He did an Outstanding job of researching my medical history before the visit, examining me, communicating with me and my daughter, who is a doctor of internal medicines. I am fortunate that Dr Afana has accepted me as a patient and is expertly directing my medical care and recovery from my heart attack.

Dr. Afana immediately took charge of the entire process & executed the procedure (inserting a stent to a blocked artery with alacrity & precision. In a follow up appointment, he took the time to review the procedure & reinforce the importance of adhering to the medication regimen, instituting & maintaining a more heart healthy diet. In addition, his manner was factual yet highly reassuring. He also presented as very caring & compassionate & took the time to answer all of our questions & addressed our concerns! He is someone I sensed that truly cared & was dedicated to helping me through the recovery & rehabilitation process. He invited us to contact him at any time if necessary, which meant a lot to us. I would highly recommend him as a cardiologist to any of our friends or family. In closing, we are tremendously thankful for having him as a our doctor!

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.
