Dr. Passman is an excellent doctor. He listens to you and he explains things clearly and he does include you in the decisions making. He knows me by name and he remembers things about our vacations etc. Other doctors have to work hard to meet his skills in doctor-patient relationships. Also he is at the top of his field.

Dr Passman was very very patient with me and all of my questions. He was very detailed, thorough and understanding of my situation and explained everything to me-options, recommendations and about the Afib center at NU. He spent a lot of time with me, going over the records and my concerns and sharing his insights and rationale. I was very grateful for the chance to meet Dr. Passman and have him evaluate my condition and look forward to having him help me improve my heart health!

Passman is excellent. My observation is that he has so many patients that he is under a lot of pressure. His resident is also great.
