Chris Stees has treated me since 2013, when my a-fib would not resolve with cardioversion. He listened to me and understood that I did not want to just live with a-fib; it had a significant impact on my quality of life. After several unsuccessful attempts to control the a-fib with medications during the first year, we decided to proceed with an ablation in 2014. Dr. Stees warned me that treating a-fib was a process, not an event -- and he sure was right! However, since the ablation I have been in normal sinus rhythm, without any setbacks, for over 6 years. I exercise regularly to improve my cardiac fitness, and have lost 20 pounds - I feel better, look better and have even discontinued my blood pressure medication. I couldn't be happier with these outcomes and the support I received from Chris and his team.

It's ver y simple Dr. Stees saved my life. I would not be wring this review had he not been there. He was able to bring me out of A Fib and implanted a pacemaker / defibrillator which intervened to stop V Fib. Ther literally is no more that can be said. In addition the practice is top notch, I actually look forward to a visit because I will leave with valuable information important to my health. Thanks much. Mike

Dr. Stees provided me with a means to continue an active athletic life. My primary physician and Dr. Stees diagnosed me with AV-nodal reentrant tachycardia. Dr. Stees performed an ablation which corrected my problem and I'm happily back on my bicycle.

Dr. Stees is brilliant and I trust him completely. He has done two ablations for me, and they have made a huge difference in my life! I wouldn't ever consider going to anyone for extensive treatment of my A-fib, other than Dr. Chris Stees!

Dr.Stees is the best, most knowledgeable heart doctor that cares not only about his patients, but how they are coping in life. He very much wants the best for every single one of his patients. Being recognized as a “ Top 5280 Heart Doctor “ made me feel so relieved that I chose the best heart Doctor in the entire state. I definitely recommend everyone who is seeking medical care for any heart issues to see him first.

I have had excellent care for 7 years. Two flutter ablations and one ablation for AFIB performed by Doctor Stees All without complications. It is very reassuring to have a doctor who cares about every aspect of heart care. Doctor Stees is passionate about patient well being and all elements of what he does .

I recently moved from Atlanta and was looking for a cardiologist that was well respected within my insurance program. I saw Dr Stees reviews and decided to give him a try. My first appointment with Dr Stees was excellent. Pre-visit health and insurance forms were emailed to me, allowing ease of completion. My appointment started on time, Dr Stees took the necessary time to thoroughly explain my condition, where he believed I was at and what I should be doing to help minimize deterioration.

Dr Stees corrected a heart issue I was having and gave me my life back! He was kind, caring, competent, had a great bedside manner and wasn't afraid to admit he didn't know everything! It is true that the wait in his office might be long, but the best things are worth waiting for, and he is spending his time giving excellent care. He sets the bar for great medicine that every doctor should strive to achieve.
