Review of Dr. Christy

- in Springfield, IL |

I can't brag enough. Dr. Christy was very informative before and after my surgery. Made me feel very comfortable, when I was scared out of my mind. He showed genuine concern for my feelings of fright and for my progress of recovery.

Review of Dr. Pathak

- in Springfiedl, IL |

From the first time I met with Dr. Pathak, he impressed me with his knowledge, kindness and concern. Took time with me, asked questions and answered questions. Seemed to be legitimately concerned. I would recommend Dr. Pathak for sure.

I have been seeing Dr. Aguirre for almost 20 years for my cardiac needs. I have recommended my family members to him and they are so thankful for his professionalism, knowledge and his sincere concern for every patient that he deals with. Dr. Aguirre is an EXCELLENT Dr. that I myself and my family feel very fortunate to have as our cardiologist.

Review of Dr. Issa

-IL |

Dr. Issa performed heart ablation surgery on my dad. My father could never eat or drink orally again and was put permanently on oxygen. No explanation why. Tried to tell us he had a stroke, but ct scans and autopsy 9 mos later were negative. Chronological surgical records were missing a lot of info. Someone made a mistake and they covered it up.

Review of Dr. Scherschel

- in Olney, IL |

I had a pvc ablation procedure for bigemeny. I had an initial procedure done a year earlier at Loyola with no success. Scherschel was able to get me in quickly and really spend a lot of time tracking and hypothesizing why my heart was malfunctioning. He was very patient, funny, kind, and thorough. He was never once in any hurry. I was very interested in the science behind the electrocardiology and he even took a great deal of time to explain some of the underlying theories and newer practices.
