About Me

Care Philosophy

When I first meet a patient I try to get to know him or her as a person, get to know their families, understand what they really want to achieve. With that in mind, we then focus on a treatment plan to achieve those goals.

What People Say About Dr. Duc Pham, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Pham's team refused to treat sternal bone infection due to a steronotomy from open heart surgery despite tests and clinical evidence of a clear infection & worsening patient status. He doesn't even show up to evaluate the patient in person, & his team doesn't even know how to read basic tests for infection. Clearly you can find better than Dr. Pham. Don't believe his profile-he obviously doesn't care at all for the affected patient & their young family- they are not even worth his presence.

Pham preformed a 4 way bypass on me in 2014. 3 weeks later the ENTIRE bypass failed resulting in a Heart attack . Seems that when he did the Bypass my Veins were " Miss Matched" resulting in a total Failure of the operation He performed. My life hasn't been the same since and he just walks away without a care. Please get another opinion from other Doctors so this doesn't happen to you.
