My Chart - i always hear back from Dr. Passman's nurseDr. Passman is an extraordinary electrophysiologist. He spens time listening to concerns, and explaining options. He performed a successful Ablation in 2018 that changed my life.My only complaint is that it is difficult to get an apointment with my cardiologist, Dr Freed. Northwestern needs to hire more cardiologists
