    Dr. El-Ashry and his team saved my life on 9/01/18. I had a 10cm aortic root aneurysm with dissection, rupture and coronary artery disease. My family was told my chances of survival was very slim. Dr. El-Ashry and team worked on me for 8 hours and now 9 weeks later I am doing great. Some say I am a walking miracle and I agree but God placed this great surgeon, doctors, nurses and medical staff at the right place at the right time to save my life.

    I'm a patient of Dr. El-Ashry. I'm AnnMarie Lancaster. I'm very grateful and thankful for this doctor. He's really on top of his game and cares about you. He checked in on me 2-3 times a day and that's really rare. I've had several surgeries before and so I know from a lot of experience. Thank you Dr. El-Ashry for everything. May God bless you the way He has me by giving me an excellent doctor in you!

    Dr. El-Ashry was my dads surgeon. Although, we did lose my dad a few days after surgery, we believe that Dr. El-Ashry tried everything in his power to save him. He is a very caring and compassionate doctor. Dr El-Ashry was at the hospital constantly during my dads battle.

    Great bedside manner. He explained everything and answered all questions. He is very confident and reassuring. Dr. El-Ashry performed a triple bypass on my husband and we were in the hospital only five days. He believes in getting his patients up and back to normal as soon as possible.
