Review of Dr. Gang

- in Elgin , IL |

Dr. Gang is a talented and extremely thoughtful surgeon. Pre and post op visits were helpful and informative. His bedside manner and interactions with family during surgery were superb. I can think of no one better to perform heart surgery. And his support staff were always helpful and anticipated our needs throughout the process.

Review of Dr. James

- in Roselle |

Dr James and staff are always compassionate and professional in the office, on the phone or in the hospital. They discuss your questions and actually teach you. Quick to respond and very helpful when dealing with other medical offices or pharmacies. Dr James treats your current medical needs and is proactive. His surgical procedures assure that if future issues arise they can be treated in less invasive ways. We trust him completely. He removed our anxiety about needing open heart surgery.

Review of Dr. James

- in Glendale Heights, IL |

If there is a special place in Heaven for doctor's, Timothy James, M.D. will have golden wings. Eight years ago, after having a heart attack with the "widow maker" being 100% blocked and two other arteries blocked, Dr. James saved my life. Today, he successfully performed a quadruple bypass on my ex brother in law. My ex brother in law is a very important part of my children's lives. When he called me and asked me for a referral, there was NO question who should do his surgery.

Review of Dr. James

- in Sycamore, il |

Dr. James is hands down the most compassionate, skilled surgeon around. He performed heart surgery in my husband in April. The way he talks to the patient and family is unlike any doctor we’ve ever met. He’s genuinely cares for his patients and it shows through his bedside manner. His team is amazing as well. Myself, my husband and my family can’t say enough about him.

Review of Dr. James

- in Hanover Park, Il |

Dr James and his staff are the best medical professionals I have ever had take care of me. When you are told you need open heart surgery, it can be a bit scary. He was so informative about every step of the process I was totally confident that I was in great hands. I have told everyone I know, if they are in need of cardiac surgery to contact Dr James' office for the best care in the northwest suburbs.

Review of Dr. Pham

- in Marion,Ma. |

Pham preformed a 4 way bypass on me in 2014. 3 weeks later the ENTIRE bypass failed resulting in a Heart attack . Seems that when he did the Bypass my Veins were " Miss Matched" resulting in a total Failure of the operation He performed. My life hasn't been the same since and he just walks away without a care. Please get another opinion from other Doctors so this doesn't happen to you.

Review of Dr. Gang

- in Mesa, AZ |

Dr. Gang was very reassuring in the office and pre op. Updated my family after surgery. He puts his patients first. He was able to do a less invasive surgery for me and I am so thankful! He is no nonsense and is an excellent surgeon. I would recommend him for anyone facing cardiothoracic surgery. All the nurses said they would have chose him for thier family as well.

Review of Dr. Gang

- in Scottsdale, AZ |

He is a fine surgeon, and a very thoughtful person. He was by my bedside at all hours of the day and night to assure I was doing well. I am two years out and tests show my heart is functioning well. During my surgery, my wife was informed of my progress every hour. I can't say enough good comments about Dr. Gang.
