NWU understands the term “Value Based Medicine”. A surgical unit is only as good as it's weakest link (surgeons, admin, staff, etc.) and I've experienced no lthobg but consistency across the board.

It took 2 weeks to get a response from the patient care coordinator and she explained that it was the nurses not getting back to her which caused the delay which I found unconvincing.

Dr. Malaisrie has been recommended by several of his past patients that I have met through my support group. I consulted a few cardiothoracic surgeons before I decided to go with Dr. Malaisrie. He is the only one that said he coukd spare my valve when others just wanted me to get a new one. Dr. Malaisrie gave me hope when I really needed it.
