What People Say About Dr. Christina Economides, MD
Reply
Dr. Economides is an amazing physician. Before her intervention (2 stents), my husband could barely walk a block without intense pain in his upper chest. The day after her outpatient cath lab procedure (at Good Samaritan Hospital - which was also excellent), he walked half a mile, and has been walking at least that distance ever since. She really cares, has a direct and approachable manner, and did extra research to find a diet he could follow without too much extra effort. Ten stars!

Dr. Economides is extraordinary and has saved a family member’s life twice. She is extremely knowledgeable, skilled and has impeccable bedside manner. Our experience with highly acclaimed cardiologists at top institutions (USC, Cedars, UCI) has in no way compared to the expertise, proactive approach, knowledge and bedside manner of Dr. Economides and I don't believe we would've had the same positive outcome had she and her team not handled this very difficult and rare case. Highly recommend!
