What People Say About Dr. Charles Hicks, MD
Reply
I was in the hospital for a 99% blockage in my main heart artery called the widowmaker 4weeks ago.I am an extremely complicated case due to a brain aneurysm, and blood clot disorders.A cath was done and a stent was put in. This WONDERFUL man was in the cardiac group of drs who cared for me. He is SO kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I found his genteel approach and clear explanations to be comforting, and I desperately needed a touch of this level of kindness amidst the frightening array of things to deal with the heart attack. He also takes the time to answer questions,teach about medications and lifestyle changes. He is kind and warm in his approach, not judgemental. I had my first followup in clinic today, and found him to be very thorough and he answered all of my questions and did not rush me.I worked in the medical field for over 30 years and I can tell you that this physician is a KEEPER!
