What People Say About Dr. Craig Lillehei, MD
Dr. Lillehei is phenomenal. His bedside manner, patient care, and explanation/reasoning of procedures are the best that we have encountered in the medical profession. He truly defines what professional means and goes above and beyond to make sure that the patient needs and family needs and concerns are thoroughly addressed. He has performed multiple surgeries on our son. We highly recommend him and wish that all surgeons and doctors were as caring, comprehensive, and knowledgeable as he is.
