Have been treated by Dr. Illum since March of 2018. She has helped me through the installation of 2 stents, a pacemaker, a minor heart attack, and tachycardia. She and her staff are the most caring and concerned physicians I have encountered in my 72 years. They carefully explain all facets of your health status, options, and procedures; select Dr. Illum with complete confidence!

I think that Dr. Illum is one of the finest doctors whom I have ever known. I often joke with her that it seems to me that she cares more about my health than I do. She is a a treasure, and I recommend her as a heart doctor for anyone who needs to see a cardiologist.
